The regional table tennis squads for the School Games at Loughborough University have been named.

There are no individual events this year as the competition has been scaled back, but eight regions will battle over three days in a round-robin event to determine the champions.

The defending champions are Midlands in the boys and South East in the girls and there will also be a standing disability event.

Among the high-profile players in action are three who were runners-up in last year’s individual events – Joe Clark (NE), Kate Cheer (SE) and Shae Thakker (SE). Also in the field is the 2015 girls’ champion Rebecca Finn of Northern Ireland.
