It’s that time of year. As our northern hemisphere produces cooler temperatures (we call it winter) the majority of our population is driven indoors. Many of these Americans are playing darts and, more importantly, enrolling into the ADA. The following is a report on new American Dart League market areas:
Twelve teams kicked off American Dart League (ADL) play in Tulsa. ADA League Manager, Rebecca Willitt continues to do a great job developing this market. Two Open divisions in four taverns have started and Rebecca reports, “We’ve got some great darters here in Tulsa. These 12 teams are just the tip of the iceberg!”
Oklahoma City, OK
ADA League Manager, Brad Geist begins American Dart League play in OKC with his first Orientation Meeting held at the Sooner Corral January 7th. “We’re anxious to get started and our OKC darters look forward to joining the American Dart League.” A special thanks to Brian Pistocco, owner of The Dart Shop, for his cooperation in getting us started in Oklahoma City.
Uvalde & San Antonio, TX
League Manager, Louis Neira just wrapped up his first division in Uvalde (located west of San Antonio). He now sets his sights on the huge San Antonio market. There are some great darters in his area and we look forward to adding them to the “Top Darter” list.
Minnesota & Iowa
ADA League Manager, Scott Quam continues to do a great job developing the American Dart League in this two state area. Southwest Minnesota and northeast Iowa has a ton of darters and Scott continues to do a great job recruiting darters who have signed up for league play this month.

We welcome the eastern PA city of Allentown into the ADL. ADA League Manager Tom DiGregorio started an “in-house” division in Rounders @ Rileys last month. We look forward to adding additional Allentown taverns next month.
Needless to say these are busy times here in the land of the ADA. In addition the following areas are “under construction” and we look forward to adding them to the American Dart League soon: Albuquerque, NM, Lawrence, MA, Springfield, MO, Junction City, KS, Athens, OH, Lockport, OH, Lawton, OK, Fairfax, VA & Lansing, MI.
