The event regularly attracts the leading internationals and this year is no exception when the world champion Oksana Jermakova, from Estonia, attempts to fend off the defending champion and world No 2, Gianna Burki, from Switzerland, and the Hungarian Gyongyi Szalay, twice winner at Ipswich. Carol Greenway, the national champion, leads the British team who will have their own contest as places in the British squad for the World Championship in Athens this July are at stake.
