2020 – Looking Forward and Back

Happy New Year!!

2020 is sure to be an exciting year for everyone playing Maximum Darts and this is a good time to reflect back on 2019.

Maximum Darts started with the dream of offering something very different for Canadian Dart players -> Excellent competition and great prize money for every skill level.

Bullshooter electronic dart boards are the perfect vehicle to connect players across this vast country and it is working better than we could have hoped for.

Of course, a dartboard is just a dartboard without a great league & tournament system behind it and the Maximum Darts team is committed to delivering that.

2019 was the year where everything really took off and we connected all the Canadian Bullshooter operators into the Canadian National Dart League and saw steady player growth and a whopping $101,000+ in payouts.

Here’s a list of the highlights:

Canadian National Dart League – expanded to include Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland & Labrador

First ever soft tip Canadian National Championship  – highest paying darting event in Canada, steel or soft at over $16,000 for one weekend of darts. We crowned We crowned 8 Singles Champions in their own skill level plus 6 Doubles Champions all ranging from Super Heavyweight to Flyweight.
