A strong entry from England includes several up and coming young players such as Angus Gillams (seeded 2 in the Main Draw) and Patrick Rooney, one of the top juniors in Europe.
Ireland will be represented in the main draw by Sean Conroy, who has been steadily climbing the PSA rankings in the last 2 seasons. A number of other leading Irish players will also be competing in the qualifying event on the Tuesday and Wednesday, including Irish #2 Brian Byrne and Ulster players such as Conor O’Hare.
