New special relationship between the JDC and NDB

Post by MancheStar » Sun Sep 23, 2018 3:23 pm

THE NEDERLANDSE DARTS BOND (NDB) has marked its approval for a potential special relationship with the JDC to create huge opportunities in the development of junior players.
After highly motivating talks between JDC Chairman Steve Brown and NDB Director Niels de Ruiter a common interest and ambition was apparent between them for the future development of the game.
A more concrete plan will need to be formalised but both parties are excited about the future.

The relationship in working along side each other will only assist young players across Holland and the UK getting great support and opportunity to compete in both organisations in harmony.
Even though the NDB have not been directly involved in this years JDC world championship campaign, in its support of the development and performance of its players the NDB has agreed for 4 of its young players to attend the JDC'S World Championship weekend in December.
In addition the NDB have provisionally agreed to host the Dutch qualifier in 2019 subject to contract”

The four man squad for this year will be selected by current PDC World No1 Michael Van Gerwen. Michael himself came through the NDB ranks as a youngster and is a huge supporter of both organisations.

JDC Chairman Steve Brown commented,
" this is a big shift in the current landscape of junior darts for us, the NDB is a huge asset to the sport and we are so pleased to be working closely with them going forward into 2019. Conversations have been hugely productive and exciting and I would like to thank Niels for his vision in creating this synergy between junior organisations and presenting the idea to the NDB board.
