We are almost half way through our current season and there are no surprises at the top of the table. Johnnie Walker Black (ex-Barry´s) are leading with ten wins and a draw. Pink Flamingo have done better that I expected having lost only once. Cat Bar have lost surprisingly many games as have we (Bamboo Grove), as well. It looks like JWB and PF are fighting for the championship and CB, BG, JWR and JJ for the third place. The eight teams in the lower part of the tables are quite even and on a good day can pull out a few surprises.

As for the individuals list there are five players above the 100 point mark with last season's runner-up Tao leading the pack. Last season's winner, Jim, will probably not make it this season as he spends his summer in Glasgow. There's a newcomer rising rapidly on the list and will be a big challenger if he remains in Hua Hin till the end of the season. Stuart from Jungle Juice is showing some remarkable skills as we Grovers were made to suffer in his hands in our match against them. - Osmo

Much is said about proper darts etiquette however the subject of mobile phones at the oche is never broached. Why not? Is the ubiquitous use of mobile phones now something so sacred and never to be questioned?

Bad enough in a friendly one on one game but this is sadly now all too common during league matches. What can or what should be done about this? Who are the worst offenders? Does one of the cartoon characters remind you of someone, possibly yourself?

All of your comments regarding mobile phones at the oche are welcome on a new thread on our  Darts Forum.


This Month's Darts  Bar


Sukhumvit Soi 22 Bangkok


The New Cowboy Bar has been a popular darts throw for more years than even most long time darts players in town.

It may look like a new bar because of recent renovation but kept all of its original charm with natural wood and brick and the main focus on the darts throw area.

Fully stocked bar with a range of cocktails and a daily happy hour from 5:30 - 7:30 on their two draught beers - John Smith's and Tiger.

Full western menu specializing in Scandinavian cuisine as well as Thai dishes. Daily specials & they open 8:30 AM serving breakfast.

If great Blues music motivates your darts game - New Cowboy Bar is definitely going to become your favorite darts bar. Their Blues music is the best in Bangkok.

Looking to join a darts team? Stop by and talk to their In-house darts pro and blues aficionado Bob, captain of NCB darts team.

   Challenge Match  Update :        


  In the month that this article appeared the response from interested players has been good. As well as a top teams match, many have an interest in attending. So there will be a B Division playoff set up as well to keep everyone busy playing darts. I have been in contact with Gary-Dale who many of you already know. He is with  Saigon International Darts League and will be in town next week. We will meet and set up the dates for this challenge match.

All suggestions to help this match become a reality are certainly appreciated. If you are interested please email me. As well, many of the best players in country do not use internet regularly or at all. If you know one of these players please let them know  about this. - -  Johnny          soi22johnny@yahoo.com

Koh Chang Open 19 - 20 May 07 -  CANCELLED

  Due to unforeseen circumstances the Koh Chang Open was cancelled. Event organizer Magnus at Northern Lights reports that he will try again later this year. Although Koh Chang is Thailand's second largest island - it is not a popular darts destination. Attempting to organize a darts event on the island is an admirable challenge and we certainly wish Magnus well on his next go at it later this year.  


Darts Thailand is now in our fifth month. Our Darts Bar Page has a total of 76 dart bars as of this writing. A special thanks to those contributing information. But we know that there are more dart bars out there. If your favorite darts bar is not yet on our list please email us the information.

The sole purpose of this site is to promote darts in Thailand by having as much information as we can find published on-line. If you're a darter traveling to Thailand by all means pack your darts. New to Thailand? Contact us and we'll point you in the direction of the nearest darts bar. Traveling in a group and want an impromptu darts match - no problem -  - Johnny
