There are a number of official world records for darts ranging from least darts most hit and of course age young and old for winning professional dart tournaments. If you want to have a go here are a few you can attempt to beat. However, if you want your attempt to be supported by the ‘Guinness World Records’ you will need to abide by there rules for recording the attempt. These rules may vary by the record you are attempting to better or indeed set!
To make sure your attempt is not wasted contact the Guinness World Records for advice. I personally can not give you this information.
