World champion Will Bayley (pictured) and double European champion Rob Davies will be among the competitors at this year’s Butterfly Michael Hawkesworth Championships at The Meres leisure centre on March 5-6.
The BTTAD National Championships event will also see other members of the GB Para Table Tennis Team preparing for this year’s Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, including London 2012 medallists Aaron McKibbin, Ross Wilson, Sara Head and Jane Campbell.
The championships provide an opportunity for young up-and-coming players to take on the members of the GB Team, many of whom are ranked in the top 10 in the world in their class.
SKDC’s executive member for culture Coun Linda Wootten said: “It will be great to welcome back Paralympian stars, in an Olympic year. I would thoroughly encourage anyone with a sporting interest to come and see the talent these sports men and women possess.”
