The Australian team has been announced for the GB vs Aus international table tennis match being held at Preston Guidhall on Monday 23rd July.

Four of the six players that will be heading to North West England will also later be heading to London to compete at the Olympic Games as they have all qualified for the big event this summer.

Star male player: William Henzell, will be joined by Justin Han in both Preston and London while the women’s team will include Jian Fang Lay and Miao Miao, who both also qualified for London 2012.

For the international match at the Preston Guidhall, these Olympic players will be joined by Robert Frank and Vivian Tan as they take on a Great Britain side which will be made up of our own Olympic selections.

Both sides will use this fixture as a key warm-up to the Olympic Games with the Australian team staying in Preston from the 20th to the 24th of July.

They will train and practice at the new Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre, which is part of the University of Central Lancashire.
