The Shack

Try before you buy!

Buying a set of darts based on a picture online is not ideal, but we’ve all been there as there’s simply nowhere to go and test them out…until now!

Finding your own setup is key to a great game. The weight, the barrel length, thickness, the shape of the flight…so many small things that if not quite right, can really affect your game.

The Darts Shack is unique to Leicester, take your time and try as many products as you wish – test them all if you have the time to spare! Trust us, once you’ve walked through that door, you may as well take off your shoes and get yourself a cuppa, because you won’t be going home for a while!

We have a choice of three different boards all waiting for you to take a throw, with various lighting and surround options. All the top brands are there waiting for you – Target, Unicorn, Harrows and Winmau, just to name a few. Don’t know what weight you’re actually using? Bring them down and we’ll weigh them for you, maybe even give them a facelift with our wide range of accessories.

We aim to please and if we don’t have what you’re after, chances are we can get it so just give us a shout!

The Shack is an ideal environment for team practices, mini tournaments and events. If you’re interested in using the space, please do get in touch.

“Visited today for a nose around bought some stems and a new wallet my old one has seen better days. Would highly recommend a visit to anyone and most of all to the people of Leicester/ Leicestershire. We have been crying out for a project like this for years, where you’re met with a friendly welcome and an option to try before you buy. I will definitely be returning and spreading the word.”

“Stuck my nose in today to see what it was like…and walked out with a new board, darts, wallet, stems & flights without meaning to! Retail at its best; enthusiastic guy in the shop (shack?) who let me try out different darts on different boards & even gave me a few throwing tips which worked instantly. This is small business at its best; passion and service before sales…highly recommended & worth a visit if darts is your thang!”
