"Close competitors in the Men's Team events are likely to include the main centres: Canterbury, North Harbour, Waikato, Wellington and of course the hosts Manawatu.

Confidence from Mitchell Barker for North Harbour "I think we have a good chance to be there at the end providing our players are on form we are just as good as any other team.  No doubt we will see Mitchell combining with 2005 National Champion Brad Chen and of course Craig Dye who recently reached the semi-finals of the Auckland Open Championships just 2 weeks ago (also won the South Island Men's Singles title).

With a number of skillful players competing in the team events there will be plenty of exciting table tennis matches to watch across all grades. A match we can really look forward to will most certainly be the clash of North Harbour's Brad Chen and Auckland''s Tony (Teng Teng) Liu".
