The “Battle of Britain” comes to Plymouth
On Saturday 29th December 2012 no less than 8 of the top 16 players in Britain have entered the 2012 Woolwell Table Tennis Open battling it out for one of the biggest cash prizes in the country.
This is probably one of the strongest line ups of players ever to have appeared in Plymouth and for all Table Tennis enthusiasts should not be missed.
The group stages will commence at around 11am on Saturday 29th of December with many of our top players from the City and Region trying to challenge many of these full time professional players.
The sparks should start flying in the latter rounds which are scheduled to commence at around 3pm.
Last year’s losing finalist Darius Knight will be aiming to go one step further this year but will be hotly challenged by Scottish Number 1 Gavin Rumgay and number 2 Niall Cameron. England number 5 Chris Doran, Number 8 Matt Ware and former European Youth Runner up turned Veteran number 1 Michael ODriscoll will also be welcomed visitors to the city.
The line up continues with England number 12 Damien Nicholls and former Devon number 1 and local favourite England number 15 Craig Bryant aiming to prove he is still a force to be reckoned with. The international flavour continues with 3 Australian players also entering the competition.
England number 3 lady Hannah Hicks will be challenging the men all the way along with local Woolwell club players Richard Marshall, Dominic Sussex, Paul Whiting, Toby Mattacott, Mike Hugh, Kevin Buddell, Liz May, Lisa Radford, Sally Smith & Marketa Myskova.
Plenty of our local junior and senior players will also be challenging these top players.
We hope to see a feast of spectacular Table Tennis and if you have never seen top class Table Tennis before then please come along and bring the family. There will be a café on site and only a £2.00 entry charge for spectators which will include a raffle ticket and a programme. The Hall opens at 9am with the latter stages scheduled for around 3pm. Final scheduled for 7pm.
