Colin will serve them right

ROCKHAMPTON players will be out to impress in the Queensland Grand Prix tournament at Leichhardt Park Table Tennis Complex this weekend.

The annual event, sponsored by Table Tennis Queensland, has attracted a host of the state's leading exponents of the sport in the round-robin singles series played in two divisions.

The city's star in the sport, Colin McKenna, is high on the list of favourites in the open section while Damon Clarke is enjoying sound form and should come into trophy calculations towards the end of the fixture.

Seventeen-year-old Joel Coughlan will be out to make the most out of his inclusion and he could prove to be a danger if he hits his straps.

Jesse Knight (Mackay) and Townsville's Paul Jones, Max Wellington and Brad Kiely will watch him closely, along with the heavyweights.

With two of the city's leading ladies in Pam Clarke and Monica Deeth being unavailable it will be up to Erica Nolan to fly the flag in the women's section and she has been seeded in a handy position in the middle of the field.

Hottest prospects in this competition appear to be Ivett Weininger, of Townsville, and the exceptionally consistent Andrea McDonnell (Ayr).

Ikue Maeda, of Mackay, could figure prominently while Mackay club-mates Kesha Da Rin and Karen Smith will be out to cause upsets along with Larissa Daveson (Townsville) and Brisbane's Ha Cheung.Colin will serve them rightROCKHAMPTON players will be out to impress in the Queensland Grand Prix tournament at Leichhardt Park Table Tennis Complex this weekend.
