Andy wins world wheelchair darts title

41 year old Andy from Cornwall recently won the world wheelchair darts title after almost packing the game in a while ago. Amputee Andy Chilton was always a keen darts player and had always played from a standing position using his crutches.

When he decided to enter for the World wheelchair darts tournament it meant he had to retrain to play darts from his wheelchair. Wheelchair users play from a standard oche but the bulls eye and indeed the whole board is lowered by 15 inches. This meant that there was a fair bit of change to get used to.

Andy states "I had to learn where to throw and how to throw, I had to change everything, but I wasn't going to let it beat me." Like many sports there are good days and bad days and Andy who is shocked at the wheelchair win title said "It's unbelievable, it's only really just sinking in"

Andy will now go back to playing both standing and wheelchair darts for his local club in Penzance called the Buffalo Club. You can read more here
