Following a coaching session last week I bumped into the City of London Darts Association finals night, with a main and a handicap event being played simultaneously at the now cavernous Spots & Stripes. It’s been several years since I attended a COLDA event, but it was good to see that the range of standard remains, and I quite fancied my own chances in the handicap competition (given a 400 point lead and ending on a single).
Their new season starts in January 2019, and COLDA are always keen to find more players. Joining an individual darts league is probably the easiest was to get regular competitive darts in central London – but don’t take my word for it, here’s what some COLDA players make of it.
“COLDA caters for beginners to the more accomplished players. Whether you are looking for an excuse to get out of the house or for proper competitive darts you will find it here. Great spirit amongst the members and an excellent way to support local venues. I love being part of this organisation.” Ali
“If you have the dart bug or just enjoy a night out,I can’t recommend COLDA enough. There are so many divisions that whatever the standard you play to there will be a division to match. I’ve played for 4 seasons and met some lovely people who treat COLDA as a social occasion as well as a darts occasion. Truly a unique league.” James
“Casual or serious its the best singles league!! If you like your darts to be social, COLDA Is where you want to be.”
“I’ve been with COLDA now for 4 seasons and it is a great league for all abilities. Pick your evening, book a board, have a few beers and play social singles darts. The downside is that I am now drinking a lot more whiskey!!”
