“Having not played in the EIC for over ten years it will be interesting to make a return !  It’s an important event, it’s good that the ESF continues to support it, and exciting that it’s being held in the UK for the first time.

“I won’t be going in with any expectations, you never know what your form is going to be like after the summer layoff, but it will be a good start for what looks like a heavy schedule of PSA tournaments between now and the end of the year.

“I haven’t played at Nottingham University’s new facility, but I’ve heard a lot of good things about it so I’m looking forward to seeing it for myself, and of course playing there.”
