The Force Behind Darts Joins The Fast Track Academy

04 August, 2021

Winmau, the force behind darts, have joined up with Nottingham College and are now bronze members of the innovated Fast Track Sports Academy. The Fast Track Academy seeks to enhance opportunities for sport students at the college and offers new experiences to help them kick start their career in Sport. This exciting partnership will allow students to get a behind the scenes look at the world of darts and will enable case study creations within the darting world.

Winmau, have been in partnership with the college for a number of years with their sponsorship of formally known Central Darts Academy, Nottingham Darts Academy and now named Room 180 Academy.  Gary Horsley, the director of the Fast Track Academy and Room 180 Academy lead, is delighted to announce the continuation of the really successful partnership and is excited for the future impact for the sport of darts and the opportunities that could be created for the college learners.  “This allows us to develop the learner’s knowledge of the darting world and creates an opportunity for the dart enthusiasts to link their curriculum to their hobby of darts.  Our links with Winmau and Red Dragon enables us to gain inside information of the darts world but also allows us opportunities to look at wider aspects like technology in sport, media / marketing aspects as well as understanding how the sport actually works.

Simon Hall, Marketing Director at Winmau, comments: “The Fast Track Academy is a great idea and the project is beautifully presented, we'd are honoured to be part of it.  We have always had such a positive relationship with Gary and the college and really look forward to helping shape the curriculum for those learners that have a passion for the darts. We are excited to be able to support developing darts in Nottingham College and really look forward to seeing the developments of the Room 180 Academy and their initiatives around education.  It does look like the future of education and darts is about to take off and we are delighted to be able to support this initiative.”
