In 2007 the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) included the word ‘dartitis’ for the first time, defining the condition as ‘a state of nervousness which prevents a player from releasing a dart at the right moment when throwing.’ The word had first appeared in Darts World magazine in 1981, coined by the then editor Tony Wood to describe a condition whereby a player finds himself or herself unable to release a dart (or darts) properly. The dart is picked up. The dart is brought up to eye level and the aim corrected. The dart is drawn back…and that’s where it stays!
