Wheelchair Dartboard Setup

Normally the official dartboard height for a standing player is 173cm ( centre of bull ), however Russ Strobel the founder of the WDDA have been successful in gaining official recognition that an equal and fair dartboard height for a wheelchair player is 137cm ( centre of bull ).

The use of these wheelchair setup guidelines have been approved by the WDF to be used in all WDF sanctioned events where the Wildfire 137 dart frame concept is used.

The revolutionary Wildfire 137 dart frame was specifically designed to afford wheelchair players the opportunity to compete directly with standing players. The WDDA have also developed The Satellite, which caters for those with an even wider range of disabilities.
