The Darts Regulation Authority (DRA) is a not-for-profit Company, limited by guarantee. One of its primary roles is to ensure good governance and integrity within the sport of darts.
The aim of the DRA remains to seek recognition as the regulatory authority for Darts worldwide with responsibility for providing and administering rules and regulations that will improve the image and profile of Darts within the Professional and Amateur ranks. The DRA Rules Book is the cornerstone of this and sets the standards of behaviour for players in DRA sanctioned events.
The DRA has the ability to make and enforce rules and regulations with regard to the conduct of Players and Members which could injure or discredit the Association or bring the game of darts into disrepute and to discipline Members and Players for breaches of any rules and regulations.
It is essential for the future of Darts that the sport is seen to be conducted fairly according to the rules and regulations and is free from corruption in any form.
The DRA Board of Directors comprises five members; Val Pallister, Tim Ollerenshaw, Mike Titmus, Ritchie Gardner and Nigel Mawer. They do not sit on the Board as a representative of any other body within darts. They are independent individuals who provide a cross-section of views and experience from different backgrounds.
