What Are Dart Boards Made of?

Answer

A dart board is made of sisal fibre, a fibrous material or hemp cork .For sisal dart boards, when a dart punctures the material, the fibres give way to the impact point so the dart nestles in between the fibres without making a hole or damaging it. There are also electronic dart boards which have a set of sensors that detect the area where a dart has landed and then send this information to a computer. In the past, dart boards were made using wound paper or wood or coarse hog hairs called bristles.
