Wales' Charlotte Carey heads the Women's field at the Douglas Huston Ulster Open this weekend, and she will not be short of support - especially from her Irish boyfriend Gavin Maguire, who is seeded second in the Men's Singles.

The 19-year-old Welsh No.1 is a regular visitor to Ulster as Maguire is balancing his German semi-professional career with his Active Club Coaching role for Table Tennis Ulster.

Maguire will need to be at his best to stay ahead of his Irish team colleagues, Paul McCreery (Saintfield) and Ashley Robinson (Clogher), after their silver medal at the Senior Six Nations tournament, but Gavin Rumgay (Scotland) is the top seed and firm favourite.

Carey will face stern opposition from Ashley Givan (Ormeau) if they clash in the final in the Lisburn Rackets Club tomorrow night.

The Douglas Huston Ulster Open begins at 6pm tonight and runs through to Sunday; showcase senior events are tomorrow.

A new Club Award is on offer for the club which performs best across all categories.
