DETERMINATION. BOLDNESS. ASSURANCE. BRAVERY. ENERGY. COURAGE. PERSISTENCE. HEART. MOTIVATION. PASSION. DRIVE. DEDICATION.

YOU ARE THE FUTURE.

We've built our Elite 1 programme so we can discover the next generation of pro dart players. We aim to work with new young players and help them, alongside their management, to develop their skills to tour card level. We provide the Elite 1 team with the best Target products, and we work with the players to help refine their set-up to ensure they get the best out of their equipment. We guarantee that their darts work for each individual's unique throw.

Established 2018, Target's Elite 1 training and mentoring programme has grown extensively by finding new talent who have won titles and world champions in the youth games of the sport. In 2020, Target saw three Elite 1 members, Keane, Brooks and Cole graduated from the programme by winning their tour cards in 2020 Q School.

Leading Target's Elite 1 team as Head of Youth Development is #TeamTarget Pro 2017 World Master's winner Lorraine Winstanley.

Lorrianne Winstanley Joins Elite 1

We are delighted to announce former World Master winner and Lakeside finalist Lorraine Winstanley will be taking over from Darryl Fitton as the new Head of Youth Development for Target's Elite 1 programme.

We would like to thank Darryl for all his work and the success he has brought to the programme since he joined in 2018.

Lorraine knows she has big shoes to fill, to build upon the amazing work already done, but she is not deterred by the challenge and is excited to take Elite 1 to the next level.

Welcome to the Elite 1 team Lorraine! Read more here.
