The Statistics Portal 2013 survey reveals 16.64 million Americans play darts! We're not surprised! Our sport provides countless hours of enjoyment for all ages. Darts is not a fad or a trend and has been played for decades here in the United States.
The American Darters Association, Inc. (ADA) was founded in 1990 as the sanctioning body for a nationwide centrally-controlled dart league. The ADA operates two types of nationwide dart leagues. One utilizes a unique system called the NEUTRALIZER® allowing members, regardless of their ability, to compete equally. The second is the traditional “scratch” Open League format.
If you are one of those almost 17 million casual darters you'll enjoy playing darts in the American Dart League. Our national league program has something for everyone! In fact, it is the only league that offers both Traditional "steel-tip" and Electronic "soft-tip" action in the same format. We are currently the largest soft tip/steel tip league in North America and currently operate in 30 states, all managed by trained professionals to ensure the best-organized darts program in the United States.
