The Gay and Lesbian Association of Darts (G.L.A.D.) is only Phoenix area gay and lesbian dart league that gives back to the community. Founded in 1987, our joint purpose is to unite the GLBT community and raise money for charity. Today’s league (Summer/Fall 2012) has 32 teams with 14 area bars sponsoring teams.
We have two regular seasons each year: Winter/Spring and Summer/Fall. A team roster consists of five members, with two substitutes. Dues are $5.00 per week with 51% of all money raised going to three local charities. In our history, the dart league has raised and donated more than $600,000.00 to local charities.
Tuesday evening's play consists of five individual games of 301, two games of team 501, and two games of team Cricket. Individual awards are given to players who have thrown a "Hat Trick," a "3 in a Bed," a "White Horse," or a "6 Dart Out."
