With the help and enthusiastic support of those involved in the IPDG Elite and Development Squads a considerable step forward has been achieved in bringing more of our GC players into consideration for future England selection.
The marvelous way in which these participants have embraced the ethos of the scheme is a major contributor factor to its success with many of the Development Squad players achieving a step change in skill and ability with some being invited to join the Elite squad. I'm reluctant to single out any individuals for obvious reasons but regular readers of the Gazette and followers of tournament results via croquetscores.com will have a pretty good idea of the rising stars on the horizon.
Looking forward to the 2018 season we need more players with potential to join the Development Squad.
So if you have the ambition, desire and determination to explore your full potential and perhaps play at International level, or you know someone who has but is too modest to declare themselves, then please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Lionel Tibble IPDG Director
