Football Darts

Tuesday 1st September 2020

Get Active: Football Darts

Age Group: Company / Seniors

Time: 15 Minutes

Preparation Needed: In the Cupboard

What You’ll Need:

  • Footballs
  • Pen & Paper
  • Blu Tack / Tape

Getting into the Activity:

To set up the game, you’ll need to write different scores onto pieces of paper and tape/stick them to a wall. Have some low scores (5,10) and some higher scores (100, 500). The higher scores could be written on smaller pieces of paper. When sticking the scores to the wall, stick the lower scores in easy to hit places and the higher scores in harder to hit places.

One at a time, young people should take turns in kicking a football against the wall, trying to hit a score. If the ball hits the piece of paper then those points should be allocated to that young person / their team. Continue playing, adding up the scores as you go along. The person / team with the most points at the end is the winner.


  • Higher and Higher – Players / teams should aim to hit each score in turn, starting with the lowest score and working their way to the highest score. The first team to hit all the scores in order is the winner.
  • Name it – Before taking a shot, the young person should state which score they are going for. If they hit that score, they are awarded the points. Should they hit any other score, then the points of the score they hit should be deducted from their total.
  • Sudden Death – Decide on one target. Each young person should get an attempt to hit that target. Any person that misses is out, all those that hit the target continue to the next round. Continue playing, with a new target for each round until there is only one person left standing.


Keeping Everyone Safe

Maintain social distancing where required. Encourage young people to not pick up the balls with their hands, but instead use their feet to move the balls around the room and position the ball ready to shoot.
