Brunswick Valley Darts Club is looking for new members. They play every Wednesday night at the Mullumbimby Services Club, at 7.30pm.

Currently they are a social club and run an in-house competition. Everyone over the age of 18 is welcome, and beginners can have coaching from the existing players.

The club offers a bus service to the surrounding areas, so transport need not be a problem. Supper is also provided. They have a cash incentive each week, which jackpots if there is no winner.

The club holds three charity days each year, competing with Tweed Valley Darts Club and Iluka. There is also an annual challenge match with the darts club at Sherwood in Queensland. These events are a lot of fun and give players the opportunity to meet other like-minded people and raise money for local charities.

‘We have a lot of fun,’ says Diane Paynter. ‘As we are a social club, there is no pressure to be an expert player.’

The cost each week is just $5. Enquiries can be made at the Mullum Services Club.
