Table tennis in Shetland has an enthusiastic and experienced local following, with a small number of players who have made their mark on the Scottish competition circuit.
The table tennis programme of the Games sees normally sees the team events played in the first half of the week, with the singles and doubles matches then played in group and play-off stages. Teams of up to four men and four women per island are allowed and the number of matches needing to be played means that events often run into the late evening.
Local table tennis player, Lynda Flaws, is one of Scotland’s most successful junior players and has been Shetland’s strongest competitor at recent Games.
Shetland Table Tennis Association is represented on SIGA by Dawid Nir.
