Facility Notes: China Hopes To Build Table Tennis Center In England
China, which won all four table tennis Gold Medals at the London Games, plans to set up a table tennis training center in Europe to help develop the sport. England will "most likely" be host to the new venue. England national coach Liu Jiayi said that he and English Table Tennis Association CEO Richard Yule "went to China for talks." Yule said that he hopes for England and "the best place" would be Sheffield, where the training center for the English national team is located (XINHUA, 9/29). ... The Professional Squash Association entered a new era with the opening of its new administration office in Leeds, England. This will support PSA's headquarters at The Queen's Club in London, the current home of the ATCO PSA World Series Finals and the AEGON ATP Tennis Championships. The new era brings to a close the PSA's link with Cardiff, Wales, where the PSA has been based since the mid '80's (PSA).
