Dart Teams and Great Team Names for Darts

Updated on March 19, 2014

What's Your Darts Team Name?

I find one of the most entertaining things about league darts is the clever team names that players come up with. Often they will be descriptive of the players on the team, other times the name reflects a humorous dart phrase or spin on dart terminology.

Not too long ago I polled an Internet audience of people unfamiliar with darts. The question - in short - asked people their opinions about how dart players are seen through the eyes of the general public.

Their general consensus was that when they saw people playing darts it looked like a casual affair. Just friends getting together for a few pints and a good time on the boards.

Many mentioned that if all the players were dressed alike or "in uniform" for lack of a better term, they would of course perceive the game as something on more of an organized and competitive level.

Think about that for a moment. How many times have you been playing darts somewhere and another person in the venue walks through the dart area on the way to the can? How about those who walk up and interrupt play? Perception may be why that happens. Perhaps if everyone were wearing their matching dart shirts on each team one may decide to go around and NOT interrupt the match, having the perception that organized competition is in progress.

Dart shirts are great for a team in that aspect as well as others. A teams sponsoring club can enjoy the advertising they get when their team wears their dart shirts to other events and venues. Plus it promotes the sport in the eyes of the public as well as the venues that support darts.

All in all a win-win situation in my opinion!

Team Unicorn - Unicorn Dart Champions

Team Unicorn continues to expand with new categories and new players from around the world. It remains without doubt the finest team of international champions in the world and it contains more major tournament wins and winners than any other.

Started initially in the 1950s when current Chairman Stanley Lowy signed up the winners of the prestigious News of the World Tournament to promote the company's darts, Team Unicorn now boasts 4 World Champions and 20 World Championship titles between them. No other brand has more World Champions and no other brand has more World Championship victories - and with Team Unicorn comprising Phil Taylor, John Lowe, Bob Anderson and 2008 winner John Part, is it any wonder?

However, never a company to rest on its laurels, Unicorn Darts has now expanded its stable of professionals from around the world to a new level. Not content with having 4 World Champions, it now boasts 6 players as Maestros , 5 as Contenders, 12 Global, 3 Media and 5 very exciting new young players in Generation 180.

Andy Hamilton's promotion from Contenders and Terry Jenkins' signing in 2007 brings the total number of Maestros to 6, joining Peter Manley, Kevin Painter, Adrian Lewis and James Wade. All are excellent darts professional at the top of their game, but just lacking a World Championship title that allows them into the very elite. However, 2008 could be the year when they break this barrier and join the World Champions.

The new look 2008 Contenders now features 2008 World Championship runner-up Kirk Shepherd after his remarkable run at the Alexandra Palace, Wes Newton, Barrie Bates, Colin Osborne and Mick McGowan. These 5 players are exactly what they're called; professionals establishing their careers in darts, snapping at the heels of the established players and likely to surprise many with their skill, dedication and 'can do' enthusiasm. They know no fear and the world titles are theirs for the taking.

      My dart team plays at a bar called Rovers Return, so we wanted something that starts with an "R". The guys on my team were thinking the Rebels or the Renegades, but those team names are so overdone. I came up with the Rejects, which is a great name, because we're all players from different teams who left to start our own team. It's also fun to yell out when you finish, and it's embarrassing for other teams to admidt that they got beat by a bunch of rejects.

      We played with 2 men & 2 women. At the tourneys we would always make a coller full of jello shots. So it seemed appropriate to name our team Jell-o for Breakfast.

      I've been on a lot of different teams in bar leagues and the CVDA, my favorite team name is probably 171 Out. We told everyone you had to hit a 171 out to be on the team. Release the Kraken is my second favorite.

      We were on a mixed doubles team last year called the 69'ers.

      Our 4th got prudish this year, and we settled for the beach bums and wear Hawiian shirts alike now. Didn't want her name in the paper under the 69'ers.

      Gotta respect motherhood. We've all got one.

      I play out of the Minuteman Dart League and our team name is N.A.D.S. It stands for Nine Alcoholic Dart Shooters although we have come up with variances by the dozens. Our favorite times are when our peanut gallery yells out GO NADS.

      I play out of a sports bar called Big Tony's. It is family owned and they are all 100% Italian. Often the wait staff wear fedora's and the place has sort of a "Godfather" feel to it. Our dart team decided Madhouse Mafia would be a tribute to Big Tony's as well as our ability to wind up on the double one.
