The table tennis event at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow will be held at the multi-faceted Scotstoun Sports Campus (72 Danes Drive, Glasgow, G14 9HD) over the ten-day duration of the 20th Commonwealth Games.
Seven gold medals will be handed out to the table tennis winners in Scotstoun (Men’s and Women’s Team, Men’s and Women’s Singles, Men’s and Women’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles) with the home nations hoping for success in front of their own friends and families after watching from a distance in Delhi 2010.
Scotstoun Sports Campus, a home for old agricultural shows until a running track and grandstand were installed in 1915, will host both table tennis and squash in its numerous facilities. Owned by Glasgow City Council, the venue has been recently refurbished and plays home to the National Badminton Academy, indoor tennis centre and other fitness facilities.
During Games time, as well as making use of six new permanent squash courts, Scotstoun’s upgraded facilities will host ten table tennis tables including two show courts and eight match courts. These facilities will then be made available to the public after the Commonwealth Games to be a valuable resource for future international championships and for use by elite and aspiring athletes.
Sitting next to the indoor facilities is the Scotstoun Stadium, which has played host to the Glasgow Warriors rugby union team since the 2012-13 season. The stadium has a capacity of 9,708 following renovations that were conducted in 2010 including the installation of an indoor 100m and outdoor 400m running track.
