Notice Board

5th May 2020

I'm sure many of you already know of the sad passing of Easton Gayle last month due to COVID-19. His funeral was a private affair due to the governments restrictions in place.

He had played in the league for many years and was liked and respected by many of the other players.

I have not posted this on the website before now at the request of his family.

RIP Easton

Important Notice CORONAVIRUS

With regards to the current advice from the government on the Coronavirus outbreak the committee has taken the decision to postponed all league games and competitions with immediate effect.

The Governments advice is to avoid all unnecessary social meetings including going to clubs, pubs and restaurants. We will be reviewing the situation constantly and hope to resume games by the end of April however this may not be the case. Can you please let all your players know and inform your venue of the situation.

Myself and Bully have several contingency plans on how to schedule the remaining matches and competitions that are outstanding. All teams will be notified as and when the league will resume.

I hope you all are and remain well. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions. Say safe


Notice From The Committee

The East London Darts League has existed in one form or another for over 50yrs. It has always considered itself to be a friendly league. The League has a set of rules to act as guidelines so that the game can be played on even terms with no bias to any team. Over the years the Rules have been amended and adapted to suit the changes in the League format and to address any circumstances that have arisen which caused disruption to the game. THEY ARE NOT THE LAW. Generally speaking any disputes that have arisen have been sorted out on the night between the teams themselves and/or the next day after consulting the committee.

Over the past couple of seasons it seems that several people in the league rather than discuss any issues refer to the rules and try to manipulate them to gain their team a points or even a monetary advantage (even thou there is no mention of gaining points or monies in the rules). On several occasions, to try and justify their case, players have even been arguing and shouting non-existent rules down the phone to members of the committee.

We simply cannot have rules for every possible eventuality that happens and common sense must prevail somewhere. We currently have 100 rules in our league, a quick browse of the internet shows that most other leagues have about 20 to 30 rules, even the WDO and the BDO only have slightly over 100 and they seem to manage without all this nonsense.

This behaviour is unacceptable and will no longer be tolerated. In the future, should the committee continue to be verbally abused and accused of being bias to one team or another, the guilty parties will be suspended.

As I have stated previously if you notice any mistakes or errors with this site please e-mail me at and I will correct them as soon as I can.
