    I’ve been watching and playing local darts for a while now. I’ve noticed the up and down of darts participation in the Houston area. It is definitely on the up tick. Leagues may not be as big as there once were. But I am running into new players almost weekly at the local pub I play pick up at. In fact: the pubs league teams are made up of complete newbies. Many of them young and rather diverse. It’s been fantastic. Anyone else seeing the same up tick?

    I've noticed the team league I used to play in (80 miles south of me now) is having good turnouts again and have for some time with a lot of new names.

    I’m south of Memphis and there is really no action here. No pubs really cause we are kinda in the Bible Belt. Squiggle tells me there’s soft tip stuff in Memphis but my schedule at our restaurant doesn’t really allow me to make it up there at the appropriate time. I really hope it sees a strong resurgence. I remember how much I enjoyed the competition and camaraderie when o was a league player A long time ago in a state far away...S.E. Connecticut!

    I feel like we are seeing a bit of an uptick in the Nashville area. I'm seeing a lot of new faces (but this city is growing at an insane rate that last few years). I am seeing a lot of young, new players in the area. VanO, we had the Tennessee Darting Organization players state championship this past weekend in Nashville and I heard there has been talk of a steel tip league trying to get started in the Memphis area and they were wanting to join the TDO. I will see if I can get more info about them and get it to you. They may have a different day that they play and are probably looking for players. If you are ever in the Nashville area, hit me up. I can show you several local spots to get a game and meet some local shooters.

    Cheers Van. I actually played a couple of seasons in Katy to promote the steel game.
