Final Grand Prix of the season
THE final Britannia Suffolk Table Tennis Grand Prix of the season takes place this Sunday at the Dome, Thurleston High school, Ipswich.
Just as at the April Grand Prix, Scottish Intenational number one Gavin Rumgay is the big favourite and number one seed, with Suffolk number two Ryan Collins seeded two.
Nicholas Leung who gave Rumgay such a hard game, returns and is seeded four, while Tony West from Mildenhall who represents Essex is the number three seed. Anthony Corbin is seeded five while Suffolk number five Gary Young is the sixth seed. Sussex’s Irish player Rory Scott and Andrew Dosher complete the top eight seeds.
The good news is that Adam Giggly from Norfolk is playing. He hasn’t played much over the last few years and is seeded 10 but is certainly in with a chance of getting into band one. Another player who could potentially get into band one is Suffolk’s Paul Broxton who at the Ipswich Championships in March beat Neil Charles 3-0
The players will compete in groups on a round robin basis and their final placing will determine which band they end up in.

Play starts from 9.30am and the dome is open from 8.30am for players to practice
