    • 1950, Edmond Hoyle; Lawrence H. Dawson, “Darts”, in Hoyle’s Games Modernized, 20th edition, London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, OCLC 560444866; republished as The Complete Hoyle’s Games (Wordsworth Reference), Ware, Hertfordshire: Wordsworth Editions, 1994, ISBN 978-1-85326-316-3, page 457:
      As has been mentioned, Darts of to-day is essentially a "public-house game," and in pretty nearly every inn, club, or institute where it has a footing (and in which has it not!) will be found minor variations in play and often games that are peculiar to the locality or even to the "school" itself. [] And in this domestic circle, at all events, it is thought that this set of Rules will prove a useful guide when taken in conjunction with what has already been said as regards the board, its position, the hockey-line, etc.
    • 1977, Harry Harrison, chapter 22, in Skyfall, [London]: Hamlyn Publishing Group, OCLC 174111720:
      Henry Lewis's body was tense, taut, his toes against the hockey, his right arm raised, his left eye half-closed. With grim intensity, backed by years of practice and experience, he sighted along the steel point, drew his arm back—and let the dart fly.
    • 1985, Keith Turner, Darts, 1st Perennial Library edition, New York, N.Y.: Harper & Row, ISBN 978-0-06-097006-2, page 22:
      Small bars would tend to produce short hockeys; the tiny fishing pubs of Yarmouth gave rise to 6ft marks []
