practicing darts in a club on your own
So i used to practice regular at home but with work and things i've struggled to practice even once a week. To be fair i haven't competed in a long time but i still fancy practicing and playing just as i enjoy beating what i have done before. Anyway i have found a snooker club near me that has 6 dartboards in i Was wondering would people be looking at me like a loner of i went in to practice on My own as my friends aren't really interested... i wondered how you guys practice If you can't practice at home like me?

Get down there and have a throw, who cares what others may or may not think. Advantage is that someone may want a game or two and adds to your practice session.

Nothing wrong with practing alone outside the house, grab a dart app if you have a cell they usually have different games

Snooker clubs will have guys practicing on tables on their own so why not on a board?

I practice at local pub when no one is there too play.

I head to a local watering hole about 5-6 times a month and toss on one of their boards and will often play against the electronic scoreboard that can be programmed for 501, 301 and Cricket----each at something like 5 difficulty levels. If playing 01 on top level, you better be another MVG to have a chance to beat it.

I don't get odd looks or have people wondering if I'm strange-------------and if they did, I don't give a damn. It almost always happens that someone will come in that is also looking to throw and we wind up playing a few series to get some actual game time in on the board. Good way to meet new players and sharpen your game.

I say go for it.

I'm normally the first to arrive for matches nowadays and have a throw at the board for a good hour or so before anyone else gets there - I don't know if anyone watches me or not but to be honest I don't care, I just go through some practice routines like 121 or play some 301 DIDO games scoring in my head

I personally couldn't care less about what other people think, stuff em. All the best athletes/players have practise time on their own, and if you enjoy it, then that's great.

There is nothing wrong with solo practice out and about - I do it quite a bit as a means to guarantee I won't be bothered by some of the distractions I might have at home.

Regularly do this - I just avoid random T20 bashing it's boring. Finishing 81 and up mostly.
