    The new leisure opportunities that tempted working-class men away from the pub in the early 20th century prompted brewers and publicans to boost the appeal of their establishments, and promoting darts was one of their most successful strategies. This detailed study of the early history of darts as an organized sport traces its origins and assesses the social factors that saw it grow into one of the most popular recreations in the country.
