Darts Throwing Distance

The throwing distance in the game of darts is regulated at 7’ 9.25” | 2.37 m from the oche to the front face of the dartboard. Dartboards must be hung on the wall with the center of the bullseye at 5’8” | 1.73 m from the floor—a height established based on the eye-level of a six foot man. Used in professional dart games, a standard oche is 2’ | .6 m wide and 1.5” | 38 mm tall to clearly establish the regulation throwing line. Casual darts environments may choose to use tape or another type of surface marking to identify the oche.
