Sixty of the top young table tennis talents in Scotland have entered for the Royal Dynasty table tennis championships at Meadowmill Sports Centre (Tranent) on Sunday.
In the under-21 event, Colin Dalgleish (Edinburgh) is the top seed, with Alex Wheeler (Falkirk)-fresh from victory in the ‘Band 2’ event at the West of Scotland Open-likely to be his main threat. Rachel Crawford (Falkirk) and Bethany Payne (Perth) will be players to watch in the Junior girls event.
The Junior boys may well feature another clash between Murrayfield teammates (and top seeds) Colin Dalgleish and Christopher Wheeler (Falkirk). Wheeler came out on at the Edinburgh Championships, while Dalgleish won when they played last week at the West of Scotland Open.
12 year old Wheeler is also the top seed for the highly competitive cadet boys category, where he will face competition from Alisdair Rennet (Dundee), Jason Fleming (Perth), Karl Frey (Perth), and John Hannah (Edinburgh). Calum Morrison (Edinburgh) will hope to continue his fine season in the Minor boys category.
