France has a small but dedicated community of darts players and regularly hosts dart tournaments. The French Darts Federation (Fédération Française de Darts) is the governing body for darts in France and organizes various competitions and events throughout the year.
One of the most significant dart tournaments held in France is the French Open. The tournament attracts players from all over Europe and is held annually in September. Another popular tournament is the French National Championships, which is held every year and is open to all players registered with the French Darts Federation.
One of the most notable dart players in France is Boris Krcmar. He was born in Croatia and moved to France in the early 2000s and has since become one of the country's most successful darts players competing in numerous international tournaments, including the PDC World Championship and the World Cup of Darts.
Other top French dart players include Anthony Lopez, who has represented France at the World Cup of Darts; and Thibault Tricole who has won multiple French National Championships. There are also several up-and-coming players, including Sebastian Pecout the 2020 French National Championships winner.
Despite the smaller size of the French darts community compared to other countries, there is still a passionate following and dedication to the sport in France. The French Darts Federation works hard to promote the sport and provide opportunities for players of all skill levels to compete and improve their game. The future of darts in France looks promising, and we can expect to see more talented French players emerge in the coming years.
