It’s a Scottish stranglehold at the Tees Sport West of Scotland Grand Prix with a record number of entrants north of the border ready to take on 2014’s first Grand Prix challenge this weekend (January 25-26th).
Over 100 entrants are ready to battle it out in the Scotstoun Sports Centre – the official venue for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, and unsurprisingly the draw is packed full of our Scottish neighbours!
Former Overall Grand Prix Champion Gavin Rumgay leads the Men’s Singles seedings as part of the strong Scottish contingent that makes up 63% of the entry to the Tees Sport West of Scotland GP. The Women’s Singles has a decidedly ‘Commonwealth Games feel’ about the seedings with Hannah Hicks, Karina Le Fevre, Chloe Thomas, Gillian Edwards, Ashley Givan and Nicole Hall all battling it out for places at next year’s showpiece for their respective countries.
