Records play a particularly important role in competitive sports. A professional player's motivation over the years can sometimes come from breaking a particular record set by another athlete at some point.

There are also many records in darts that have stood for a long time. In this blog post we will show you which records currently exist in darts and who might be able to break them .

Be it the highest average , the most titles or the most 180s in a match. There are particularly many individual dart records that are worthwhile for a player. So dive into our Guinness Book of Dart Records .

Dart records – which records are important for players in darts?

Records in darts, like in any other sport, play a big role. They serve to set records and stand out from competitors - sometimes for eternity.

To be immortalized in the history books and to have one's own name associated with an entire sport for a long time - that's what every professional athlete dreams of.

At this point we would like to introduce you to the most spectacular darts records - in the hope that they can be beaten in the future.

The highest average – world record set by Peter Wright in front of TV cameras

The highest average in darts is currently held by the reigning world champion Peter Wright . How could it be better? Some people will be surprised that these statistics don't mention a Michael van Gerwen , a Gary Anderson or a Phil Taylor .

In October 2019, Peter Wright managed to set a world record at a PDC Players Championship tournament. Wright beat Poland's Krzysztof Ratajski 6-0 in the quarterfinals, averaging an incredible 1 :23.5 points .

This is exactly 0.1 points more on average than Michael van Gerwen managed in a Premier League match in 2016. Well, this average only applies to a tournament with TV cameras.

The highest average without TV cameras – Kyle Anderson surprises

Who would have thought. This is where the name of Kyle Anderson stands, who scored an incredible 134.82 points at the Players Championship 5 in 2015.

Back then in a match against Terry Jenkins. This once again makes it clear which averages the professionals can play without pressure or constant observation by TV cameras.

Most 180s in a tournament – ​​record holder Gary Anderson

Gary Anderson is known for throwing easily with his arm. How he feels determines his form on the day . This is also a reason why Gary Anderson is considered one of the best scorers.

The Scot regularly throws 180s on the assembly line. Like in a tournament when Gary Anderson scored the maximum a total of 64 times .

Max Hopp and the dart records of the highest average of a German player

Max Hopp is currently still the best German player in the world rankings . Hopp also underpinned this position with a very special record - the highest average that a German player has played to date: 119.24 points on average against Ian White in 2019.

Most 9-darters in front of TV cameras: van Gerwen on the trail of Taylor's dart records

As time went on, more and more 9-darters fell in front of TV cameras. This also had to do with the rising level of darts as a whole . The 9-darter, especially in front of cameras, is still a very special experience for a professional.

Phil Taylor has had this feeling the most so far. The old master managed to play the perfect game in front of running TV cameras 11 times . But Michael van Gerwen is already on Taylor's trail with 7 9-darters and will normally be able to grab this record in the next few years .

Most 180s in a match

Here too, Gary Anderson is ahead. With 22 times of 180 in just one game , Anderson managed to beat the old record of Raymond van Barnevald , who hit the maximum 21 times in a match.

Most conceded 9-darters

James Wade holds a less great and more sad record. James Wade is the player who has had to endure the most 9-darters to date. This has already happened 7 times .

In a match against Phil Taylor, “The Power” even managed two 9-darters at once against Wade. Even a third was not entirely unlikely in this game, as Taylor only failed with the eighth dart.

The 19-darter for eternity

Admittedly, a 19-darter doesn't sound like a really big record. A professional would probably be more than just dissatisfied with such a leg - at least with the 501 Double Out mode.

However, the situation is different if a whopping 1001 points have to be thrown at zero. In 1975, a certain Cliff Inglis managed to check 1001 points with a double using 19 darts.

Fun fact: He accidentally started his first dart over double 20 - unintentionally. A good example of how you should always keep at it.

Women's dart records - Lisa Ashton for eternity

The women can also play darts, and they have proven this often enough. If you still doubt this, you should take a look at Lisa Ashton's average record.

It sets the record for the highest average for women in a game. Overall, Ashton averaged 100.20 points .
