Darts in Western Australia became an Incorporated body in 1947 when Western Australian Darts Association, ( later became Perth districts Darts Association and is now Perth mixed Darts Association) received Incorporation and became the governing body in W.A.

The State Championships for some years was played between W.A.D.A., Fremantle, Swans and Kalgoorlie. When the Country Championships strengthened (these Championships were organised by a separate body) a country composite side became part of the State Championships. Of course way back then the Ladies were not recognised.

The first State team to participate in the National Championships travelled East in 1964.

In 1971, after much discussion, the ladies were let into the fold and affiliated bodies were formed, which became Western Australian Darts Council Inc in 1974 and is now Darts Western Australia Inc.

In the mid 70’s Toodyay Men’s Association (an affiliate of WADC) advertised a singles competition to be held in a local hotel with prize money for the winner. The local constabulary did not allow this to go ahead as they decreed darts was a game of chance and therefore it was classed as illegal gambling. This started the debate as to the classification of darts and after much petitioning and discussion the Government accepted Darts as a sport.

In the early 70’s the only players who could participate in the State doubles and singles were those who had first won their own Associations titles

The Men’s and Ladies State teams have won many more National titles than any other State and currently still compete extremely well at this level. 1974 saw the development of the under 25’s and 1980 was the beginning of the under 18’s program. Both of these are still going strong.

Today competitions are held for all ages and ability levels and whilst the game is now on the rise due the sport receiving some high profile recognition on TV.
