Perth Grand Prix, Sunday 14 October

Our Welsh visitors will also be playing in the Perth tournament which begins at 9.30am on Sunday.

Play will take place throughout the day on 21 tables. Both Scots number two ranked players, Lucy Elliott and Colin Dalgleish are top seeds in their respective events but will face stiff opposition from a strong field which includes visiting players from Wales, Ireland and England.

Good luck to all the players for a successful weekend and a big vote of thanks to the many volunteers and Table Tennis Scotland officials who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make it all happen.
