The Scots are especially upset about the exclusion of their national champion, Anne Gibson, particularly as the most controversial selection was of the little-known Kelly Morgan. Gibson beat Morgan in the Commonwealth Games.
Neither of the English women's singles players, Joanne Muggeridge and Suzanne Louis-Lane, are strong prospects to do well. Furthermore, only one women's doubles pair (from England) has been named, when two can go to the Olympics. The Scots want to know why the Allen sisters, Jenny and Elinor, have not been included.
The Olympic manager, Andy Goode, said: 'Some Scottish players did not help their cause by playing in Canada instead of in the first tournament of the British Grand Slam, but the way is still open for them to be included.'Reuse content
