Table tennis: Dalgleish and Wheeler among leading lights at Meadowmill

Have your say

SIXTY of the top young table tennis talents in Scotland will compete for the Royal Dynasty championship at Meadowmill Sports Centre on tomorrow.

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 team-mates (and top seeds) Dalgleish and Wheeler (Falkirk), while Wheeler, 12, is also the top seed for the highly competitive cadet boys category, where he will face competition from Alisdair Rennet (Dundee), Jason Fleming (Perth) and Karl Frey (Perth).

Calum Morrison (Edinburgh) will hope to continue his fine season in the Minor boys category.
