*"By the late 1920s a standardised dartboard was introduced and remains the most popular dartboard today across the world. However, the ‘standard’ dartboard (also known as the ‘London’ or ‘Clock’ board) was not an overnight success in the UK. Initially it had to compete with other different existing target boards played on in some localities. These have come to be known as ‘regional dartboards’ and were usually named after their region of origin, for example, the Yorkshire Doubles board, Kent Doubles, the London Fives and the Manchester Board"
