This weekend welcomes one of the most popular Grand Prixs on the ETTA circuit. The Bribar London Grand Prix kicks off on Saturday with crucial points available for the players chasing the end of season awards.
In the men’s singles, Danny Reed’s withdrawal (because of his Danish League play-off commitments) means it’s another fight between this season’s big four; Gavin Rumgay, Ryan Jenkins, Chris Doran and Paul McCreery.
While they battle for the overall Grand Prix series prize they have to be careful not to be toppled by a number of players who could all equally reach the final at this prestigious event.
The quality in the depth of field in London means that anyone from the four overall title contenders to the likes of; Gavin Evans, Filip Szymanski, Matt Ware, David McBeath and Jekwon Choi all have a realistic chance of reaching the final.
Also looking to cause a few surprises might be the likes of Lawrence Trumpauskas, Emran Hussain, Lewis Gray and Mike O’Driscoll – making the last 16 of the men’s singles a mouth-watering prospect.
In the women’s singles runaway series leader Yuko Tsuji will look for her fifth title when she begins in London at the weekend.
She will face competition from the likes of Cardiff Open Champion Charlotte Carey and English National Under-21 Champion Emma Vickers. Also trying to upset the favourite will be Lauren Spink, Karina Le Fevre, Yolanda King, Sanja Clements and Welsh twins Megan and Angharad Phillips.
There will also, of course, be the banded events on Saturday as well as the veterans, under-21s and restricted competitions on the Sunday for all players attending to compete in.
