Trina Gulliver MBE – Ten Time World Women’s World Darts Champion

Trina Gulliver MBEWrote: Darts-Oche is a valuable go-to sight for all new players. I have known David for over ten years; his dart knowledge is vast. Darts-oche and his other dart websites are packed with darts information that all will enjoy reading. The content is always well presented as he takes time to recreate digitally some of the past boards and board setups.

I would recommend this site to any new players looking for all information on what's going on in darts right now.
