The sport originates from the UK, so all measurements are in feet and inches. Let’s convert these correctly.
1 foot = 12 inch, 1 inch = 25,4 mm.
From the floor to the center of the Bull’s Eye:
5 feet. 8 inches = 68 inches = 1727,2 mm
From the front of the dartboard to the Oche / throwing line:
7 feet 9 1/4 inches = 93,25 inches = 2368,55 mm
Most websites will mention 1,73m and 2,37m, but as you can see this is not quite right.
Now, let’s add some math:
As good old Pythagoras says: “a2 + b2 = c2”, so:
5610029,1025 + 2983219,84 = 8593248,9425 and get the square root from this last one gives us:
So, our bullseye – oche distance should be 293,14 cm long to test the measurement diagonally.
The more you know…
Have a nice day!
