West of Scotland Grand Prix

Day 2 of the Tees Sport West of Scotland Grand Prix and some big names are due in contention as the GB Grand Prix circuit heads north of the border this weekend.

Glasgow Club Gorbals hosts what promises to be an exciting day of table tennis finals.  Welsh No. 1 and serial Grand Prix winner Ryan Jenkins is a hot contender for the men’s singles title, although he’ll need to overcome Edinburgh’s Craig Howieson who will be looking to shine on home soil.  The Scottish No.2 and defending champion will be looking to repeat his success of last year when he narrowly overcame compatriot Gavin Rumgay, the number one seed, in a titanic West of Scotland Grand Prix final.

Paralympian David Wetherill and Chinese Super League player Xu Ruifeng are also confirmed in the men’s singles, while Karina Le Fevre and Emma Vickers, who contested the final at the Bristol Grand Prix in November, are in the women’s singles.

A fantastic opportunity to watch elite table tennis up close and personal, the event is free for spectators.  However tickets are limited and hence early arrival at the West of Scotland Grand Prix is recommended to avoid disappointment.  Action starts today at 9.30am.
