FLIGHT Club (not Fight Club as I’ve been calling it for weeks!), opened last week and it’s bloody brilliant!
At first I thought drunk darts sounded at best, a tad dangerous, but I couldn’t have got it more wrong. Don’t worry if you don’t know the first thing about the game. Flight Club has completely blown apart the classic pub game of darts and reassembled it using futuristic technology.
Gone are the days of dodgy maths and writing on chalkboards, social darts is the first truly inclusive darts experience, using real-time, animated scoring and a slick touch screen interface created by a rocket scientist! Groups of friends will be crowded around the dartboard battling it out to be victorious, irrespective of ability or experience, anyone can play and anyone can win! (I did and that really does say something!)
Add in some banging cocktails – (we LOVED the slushie!) and sharing boards of pizzas, etc and you’ve got yourself a super fun night on the cards.
Trust us, Flight Club is the brainchild of the guys behind Bounce and All Star Lanes, so they know what they are talking about.
Steve Moore, co-founder of Flight Club, said: “Darts is going through a remarkable resurgence at the moment, with Prince Harry just one of the very many attending the World Championships each year. From a playing perspective, we saw a huge opportunity to redefine one of Britain’s most loved sports by introducing some cool tech into the game-play, making it super easy and fun, especially for people who haven’t played before. Both the game and venue have been designed with groups of friends in mind, making the whole experience very social. Come along and see for yourself!”
