The College is running a 9-dart bullseye challenge for Sport Relief. Staff, students and external school pupils will have 9 darts to try and score a maximum of 45 points – 5 for the ‘bull’, 1 point for the ‘green inner ring’. The competition closes on Sport Relief Day on Friday 19 March. Entry is 50p and all entrants also go into a raffle draw.
Sport Manager at Central, Gary Horsley said:
“Having Dave here was a great way to launch the competition. It’s a massive incentive for everyone taking part in the competition to see a professional player sitting top of our leader-board!”
The College runs a darts academy at its Clifton centre for students with a passion for ‘arrows’, the facility is also used to help embed maths into the sport curriculum. The facility is named ‘Room 180’ and features 5 tournament standard dart boards.
