Darts World Secure Danish Collaboration.

Darts World has always looked further afield than its home audience. From its beginnings, in 1972, the magazine has sought to provide a snapshot of as much of the ‘Darts World’ as possible.

A ‘great Dane’ Per Laursen has carried the flag for Denmark many years, but new players are coming through.

The newly re-invigorated publication is again seeking to build relationships with friends and partners across the globe.

The DW team is delighted to report a newly agreed collaboration between ourselves and Denmarks, No.1 darts site, Dartnyheder.dk. A Darts World spokesperson said:

“Darts World has always sought good relations and mutual cooperation with a publication, governing bodies throughout darts.

We are delighted to cooperate with a site as devoted to darts as dartnyheder.dk

The growth of mainland Europe’s dart scene, over the last decade, has been rapid and extensive. The Nordic/Scandinavian arena has provided an increasing number of talented players and an affiliated (PDC) tour of its own.

Danish and Scandinavian players have been making a big impact in recent years.

Darts World hopes to provide its new friends with content and entertainment for their readers whilst, at the same time, offering a detailed window into the fast developing Danish/Scandinavian darting sphere.

Daniel Thybol said:

Thank you to Darts World ……I’m very excited about the new possibilities and our new cooperation.

Daniel hopes to expand the arrangement to include more PDCNB information and insight. We look forward to a thriving relationship in the coming years.


Ochepedia Adds To Darts World’s Number!

HE’S the man who, arguably, knows the dart players better than they know themselves. For every thud of the board around the competitive game, a stat is accumulated in the northeastern United States town of Bee Gees hit fame Massachusetts.

Master of ‘The Numbers Game’.

That stat is produced by Christopher Kempf, widely-recognised now as Ochepedia. Kempf is the go-to legend of the sport, used by the Professional Darts Corporation and often-referred to on TV by commentators Rod Mardle and Wayne Mardle.

Now the official statistician of darts has joined the official voice of darts. Kempf will now bring his incredible and unrivalled source of information to Darts World. The king of numbers is ushering in a new era of the sport, analysis to the extreme. Chris joins Darts World as a contributor across a wide range of darting areas. He is also leading the development of popular stats site dartsdatabase.com

The arrows have never seen such pinpoint accuracy since King Harold took one in the eye at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

If Kempf had been around then, he probably would have expected the Normans to take that route with a 46 percent success rate. But nowadays instead of the Bayeux Tapestry, being that source of information, it’s now the man Ochepedia himself, in Darts World.

Kempf admits he had never even looked at the sport until five years ago when he watched a YouTube video of Michael van Gerwen hitting 17 perfect darts at the Alexandra Palace.

Now he conducts a fascinating insight into the working brain on the oche. He will bring his unique plethora of graphs, tables, and data to the longest-serving darts magazine in the world – where he belongs.


Whitlock Adds Joins Remote 9-Dart Club.

Simon Whitlock became the latest player to hit an online nine-darter on his way to winning a ‘remote’ knockout tournament featuring other top names this weekend.

Winmau’s Simon Whitlock has had a relatively successful spell and seems to have adapted well to the distanced darting situation.

Former World Championship semi-finalist Whitlock took out his nine-dart finish during a second-round encounter with the in-form Jake Jones. The Australian’s nine-darter and the later final (vs Dobey) were not streamed online due to regulations that come alongside owning a tour card.

Simon had a disappointing time in the newly instituted PDC Home Tour but has acquitted himself well, in remote darts events, since.

‘The Wizard’ came through a field of 128 players in the tournament including Michael Smith and Chris Dobey last Saturday afternoon defeating Chris ‘Hollywood’ Dobey in the final. The event was put together by Australian Danny Kilbane, Dobey had conquered Michael Smith and the dangerous Andy Boulton en route to the final.

Meanwhile, the ‘Aussie Wizard’ removed Joe Murnan, William Borland before clinching victory over Dobey During his earlier encounter, with Englishman Jones, Whitlock hit six 180s in ten legs with two of those coming back-to-back in the final leg, Simon then completed the regulation 141 check-out to become the third big-name player to his a nine-dart finish during the lockdown months.

Unfortunately, neither Whitlock’s nine-darter nor his final against Dobey were allowed to be streamed online due to regulations that come alongside owning a tour card.
