We certainly hope everyone is staying healthy and safe with their friends and family! As we navigate the procedures for restarting the league please be patient. The laws currently make it very difficult for the smaller venues or the Chicago located bars to enforce or even open.

The Covid-19 pandemic has cause the most significant disruption to our sport since the beginning of SDL inception. The 2020 season was a complete lost not only for our players but for our dedicated sponsors who count on darts for additional income on Monday & Wednesday nights. In addition, the loss of our annual Cup whose liquor sales assist our non for profit venue the ELKS club hit their bottom line.

The health and well-being of the players, spectators and venue must come first with no exceptions. Please make no mistake we want to restart the league and miss darts as much as the next person but will only do so when it is safe for everyone and law permits.

Going forward the Dart League will have the Summer Luck of the draw if the restrictions ease enough or the Covid laws change. We will notify our sponsors with a letter of intent to be prepared in case this does happen. We look forward to seeing you all on the oche very soon, until then stay safe!

Hello All,
Unfortunately due to the on-going covid crisis and some of the sponsors not being able to be open at all, we have to cancel the fall season. This will include our annual SDL Cup. We know this has not been easy on anyone and for that we are deeply saddened. Our sponsors have been especially hard hit during this epidemic. For that reason we encourage and support any of our sponsors that can continue promoting the sport of darts. Whether that be in-house leagues or lucks of the draws. The dart league board will also offer any support we can to assist these efforts. We promise that as soon as this crisis is over we will be back! Any questions or concerns contact the league.
Please Stay safe and heathy and keep up your practice game.

Sharon Huffman
Southside Dart League President
