Also in the mixed doubles line-up is current men’s doubles champion Paul van Rietvelde (Longniddry) who partners women’s singles champion Kirsty Gilmour and the strength in depth in mixed bodes well for Scotland with the 2014 Commonwealth Games now firmly on the horizon.
Blair also tackles the men’s doubles with former singles champion Gordon Thomson (Glasgow) in what will be another tightly contested event. Reigning champions Briggs and van Rietvelde will be aiming to defend the title they won together for the first time last year, whilst 2010 and 2011 champions Jamie Neill (Hamilton) and Keith Turnbull (Larkhall) will also provide stiff opposition.
In the men’s singles reigning champion Kieran Merrilees (Glasgow) will be defending the title he has won for the last two years in a line-up which also includes two other former champions – Calum Menzies (Falkirk) and Craig Goddard (East Kilbride).
Bothwell’s Kirsty Gilmour will be favourite to retain her women’s singles crown with former singles and doubles champion Rita Yuan Gao, who now coaches in Switzerland, once again returning to Scotland to compete.
Gilmour will also tackle the women’s doubles with Cooper, who is aiming to win the title for the third time in a row with as many partners, having won in 2011 with Emma Mason and last year with Bankier. Cooper also won the title in 2009 with Bankier.
