Friday 15 October 2010 Press Release from Paul


For many years darts has been seen as a hobby and derided as being merely a pub based pastime rather than a sport played by dedicated professionals. The truth is that there was a time when this was arguably an accurate reflection of the game, but today’s game is becoming far more sophisticated and driven by science. So what’s changed?


For a start, the sport of darts is big business, and the top players can become very wealthy.

Phil Taylor, the sport’s greatest ever player has amassed millions in prize money and sponsorship. Taylor is not alone in enjoying the benefits of modern day darts with the top players earning six figure salaries. With so much at stake there has been a definite change in how players prepare themselves and practise for tournaments.


The psychology of sport is more important than ever and darts is no exception. When standing alone at the oche, a lapse of concentration could be the difference between success and failure. With the stakes so high who do darts players turn to when they need to improve their game?


Darts Performance centre is an online resource specifically designed to help improve the performance of darts players from casual player to the professional. Paul Gillings of has spent years developing a formula for darts players to reach their peak through a combination of goal setting, improvement strategy development, nutrition and coaching advice. “Darts is a sport where you are solely responsible for your performance; preparing yourself and training are essential to success. Also a mental toughness is vital when standing at the oche under pressure to hit that vital double to win the match.”


Paul aims to help darts players go to the next level and invites those that wish to do so to visit There you will find advice to help improve all elements of your game. Whether you’re looking to improve your standing in the local league or you have your eyes on Phil Taylor’s crown, the resources at could help you reach new levels of performance.
