Hope you are all safe and well.
This is an update on where the
Brighton Men's Dart League stands as of 15th July 2020
The Committee have now decided that
the Men's Dart League Winter season 2019/2020 will
not be completed and final League standings will be
calculated on a points per game system (as used by many Leagues
that have not been able to complete their seasons). Also the
team cups and individual cups will be cancelled altogether. This
has not been an easy decision for the committee to make but it
has been more than 17 weeks since we had to suspend the Dart
League due to government advice and all pubs being closed to
prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
The committee have been waiting to
see when we could restart the League and this is not looking
like it is going to happen in the near future due to Government
advice of a maximum group of 6 people from 2 households only.
Pubs are also advised to use table service so they don't have
groups of people standing around or going to the bar in the pub.
Landlords of some of the darts venues will have a logistical
nightmare trying to adhere to guidelines with 15 to 20 dart
players in on a Tuesday night.
When the Government ease
restrictions for pubs the Committee will look at the best way to
get dart teams playing again.There
is no quick and easy way to do this. Firstly we would
need to know how many teams will reform after this forced long
break. We may have also lost some pubs/venues and teams may need
time to find new venues to play from.
If some of you are desperate to have
a game of darts, please contact your pub/Landlord first and see
if they are happy for a couple of players to have a game or
does not mean we will be starting the League up again for some
time as it would be very irresponsible for the Brighton Men's
Dart League to start team games with the Covid 19 still taking
lives around the country.
As soon as we have any solid dates
about starting the League up again, I will contact you to find
out the status of your dart team/venue.
Be safe, and hopefully we can start
playing team darts again sometime later this year.
