Catering to one of the oldest and most traditional pub games, the Winmau Fourth Generation Professional Dartboard is an excellent design packed with lots of handy little features, created by people whom darts is not just a game, but a way of life.
A revolutionary wiring system is a prominent feature in this staple free dartboard, made from dynamic, 50% thinner wire to reduce bounce outs and allow for maximum scoring. The Winmau is also built with high tensile steel and an ultra strong material to make the Fourth Generation more durable and longer lasting than average dartboards.
Darts has existed in various forms since the middle ages, but it wasn’t until the early 20th century when a standardised dartboard was produced. It was initially ruled as a game of chance and was illegal for a few years, until a landlord went to court and threw three darts into the 20 segment before challenging officials to do the same. None of them could, so it was officially decided that darts was a game of skill rather than luck, and it was made legal again.
Our founder, Reginald Waldersmith, adored darts as a pastime. A favourite tactic of his was to pop to the pub with a group of friends, sipping slowly as he let them drink through the night, before challenging them to a game of darts a scant hour before closing time. Thus he earned the mantle of the local darts champion. We’ve been selling darts since 1962, so know a thing or two about our products!
