New Darts Team Consists Entirely of Blind People

The Dolphin Inn, a pub in Grampound, Cornwall, UK, has a new darts team. The players, who call themselves the Optimists, are all blind. Pictured above is team member Richard Pryor and pub owner Joe Fryer in front of the dartboard. Pryor and his friends will compete against other teams affiliated with the pub.

How does a blind person play darts? Carefully. Also, the players tie a string from the bullseye. This string helps the player aim in the right direction. Don't worry about safety. Pryor says that they're taking appropriate precautions:

We're shutting the door to the toilet just in case someone comes through and gets a dart in the rear.

Pryor describes an ideal scenario for his team: an electrical blackout. This would put the Optimists on equal footing with sighted teams.
