With the Australian Deaf Games Adelaide 2016 having officially got underway earlier today, Australia’s deaf dart community has made their presence felt with a large contingent of players showing up to represent their sport and compete in Games.



The darts competition in Adelaide features a men’s team, women’s team, mixed doubles, men’s single and women’s single competition.  Teams from Western Australia, South Australia and Victoria are all scheduled to compete.


The Australia Games are a good warm-up event for Australia’s best dart players as the event is a good warm-up event for inaugural World Deaf Darts Championship scheduled to take place in Cranbourne, Victoria, Australia at the Cranbourne Public Hall and Gardens in April.


The Adelaide Games are also a celebratory event for the Australian Deaf Darts Association, as the organization turns 30 years old this year.
