The draw for the Tees Sport Sussex 4* at the K2 Leisure Centre is out and it features an extremely strong junior and cadet line-up as it’s one of two crucial events to gain rankings points ahead of the Cadet and Junior Masters later on in the season.

Taking place this weekend in Crawley there are the junior boys and girls singles, cadet boys and girls singles and the banded events with a number of the successful players from this weekend’s Bribar Guildford Grand Prix involved.

Helshan Weerasinghe, the under-21 Champion after defeating Paul McCreery, will start as number 1 seed ahead of Band 1 winner Igor Morais. They will also face competition from the likes of Liam McTiernan, Sam Mabey, Jarred Patel and the impressive Luke Savill.

The girls’ draw is dominated by the presence of Tin-Tin Ho, who makes her English season bow as the top seed for both the junior and cadet girls’ competitions.
