The Downshire Arms Darts Team was established in September 2011. Initially a small group of darts enthusiasts, who socialise in the hotel, expressed an interest in starting a team to play in the local league. This interest soon blossomed and a team was entered to compete in the Banbridge & District Dart League 2011/12 season. After a highly enjoyable first year, more members were recruited for the following season and a high standard of darts has been on display......occasionally since!!

Indeed the Downshire Arms has become somewhat of a local hub for the sport, as we have hosted the league's highly coveted finals night, as well as competitions for important charities, such as NSPCC. Most recently, we had the honour of welcoming two legends of the game to our premises for a night of great darts and craic, with all proceeds going to Marie Curie Cancer Care. Locals were able to test their skills against 1983 World Champion, Keith Deller, and 5 times World Champion, Eric 'The Crafty Cockney' Bristow.

There are currently 14 teams in the local area, with the league being split into 2 divisions of 7. The Downshire are in the Premier Section, which is operating at quite a high standard.
Matches are played on Thursday nights, with the Cellar Bar being our home 'oche'.
