Let's start with the most important stuff:
Have fun!

Besides that. Keep focussed on what you're trying to do, which is putting the dart in the hole one dart at a time.
Don't let things like "I need a big score now" get in your head since that's only putting unnecessary pressure on yourself.
Try to play the board instead of your opponent to help you stay relaxed.

PS.
Did I mention to have fun yet? Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Thing is all the Tips can go out the Window when you step to the Oche...

Mate, go into it with no expectations... Build up your confidence of playing in front of people on the Competition Oche, don't put pressure on yer self to throw Quality Darts... I'm of course unsure as to how you rate your own standard, things change when you start playing Proper Darts, away from the Comfort of your Practice Board. After you've got used to the surroundings of real competitive Darts, then start to create some expectations for your self.

Thanks, im going in with no expectations. It makes a change to be playing with/against something that isnt pro darter lol

Just focus on your throw.
Nerves are quite normal.
In the end we all like to win but just remember to enjoy the game.
Good luck...you will be fine.

1--Practice at home for as long as you’re comfortable with before you go to league night, but don’t over-practice and shoot yourself out.
2--Definitely don’t do any workout routines, exercising, swimming or cycling on the day of league night. When I do those things, I lose fine arm muscle control and I have trouble hitting the board.
3--As said above, go in with no expectations.
4--Be aware that you may not do very well on your first night in the noise, distractions, hubbub and chaos of a typical league night scenario.

I shot league >20 years ago and just got back into it six months ago. My first two weeks were disastrous and I found how badly I shot really hard to believe. I finished the season in the middle of my class (which I thought was OK for a “beginner-again”), but my first couple weeks were the worst. If it goes that way for you--take it in stride, don’t let it mess your game up, keep practicing and keep plugging away. Good luck with it.

When I first joined a team for league play, I had no idea who my teammates were or what formats the league was doing. I went in being very nervous, doesn't help I have anxiety. Luckily for me the people on my team and the other team were really cool. I went early to try and help calm my nerves by having some free time on the boards. This helped a lot. Once things got started I just took each game as they came. I started to have fun and the more games I played the more comfortable I got. Eventually with only playing in half the games I still became one of the top players in our division.

Good luck.

Well I had a good night, nerves, well you would of thought I was standing at the ocey at the alaxandra palace. My scoreing wasnt to good but I made up for it with my finishing. The team won 4.3 so on the whole a good night!

Good for you! You’re off to a better start than my team got off to. We got soundly thrashed for the first two weeks. If you practice daily, I’ll bet you might end up in the upper end of your division. Good luck with it!

Thanks everyone, all I have to do is work out the balance of practise and not annoying the wife with the "all you do is play darts".

So glad you had a great time, even better your team won. Just remember it is a game but kicking ass is much more fun while you are at it Ha Ha!

That is so very true. I think I am still at the point of taking it too seriously
