Dharmesh Puna, recently retired from the PHC M1 squad, and Kate Segetin, (nee Crotty), who played for Chiswick before returning to New Zealand have both been selected for their respective NZ squads for the IMHA Masters World Cup.
The IMHA Masters World Cup is the field hockey world cup for master national teams (over age 35) from all over the world. The competition includes both men and women teams and is divided into the following categories:
Each category (+35, +40, +45, +50, +55), both men and women, will have a winner, so that at the end of the tournament there will be10 world cup winners.
The IMHA Masters World Cup takes place every 2 years and is promoted since 2012 by the International Master Hockey Association (IMHA) and recognised worldwide by the International Hockey Federation (FIH).
The competition takes place between 27th July and 5th August 2018, and this year will be held at Club Esportiu Ègara, in Barcelona.
We'd like to wish both players the best of luck making the final squads and in the competition, and who knows, their could be a club tour to Spain in the offing!

As there are already two umpiring courses running in Middlesex in January, PHC Chiswick will not be running our own course. Instead we are asking our umpires, players and parents to get involved in one of these two upcoming Level 1 umpire courses in Middlesex.
Sunday 15th January, 9am-4:40pm
Aylward Academy, Windmill Rd, Edmonton, London N18 1NB
DEADLINE 5th January
Sunday 29th January, 9am-4:40pm
St Benedict’s School Fields, Perivale Lane, Greenford, UB6 8TL
DEADLINE 18th January
As soon as you umpire a few games with Chiswick, the club will refund your umpire course fees. Umpires who have taken the course get paid £10 per game and get fantasy points.
Once you've taken the course, the club will give you games to umpire, starting easy and then getting more challenging the better you get as an umpire. You will have umpire coaches for the first few games you do and will be supported by me and the umpire coordinators throughout your games.
Please do book onto one of the courses, and do so ahead of the deadline as both middlesex courses which did go ahead were fully booked at least a week before the deadline.
