The world's No 1, 2, 4 and an ever-improving 10 will be in Birmingham on Sunday competing for the pounds 14,500 prize in the Inter Footwear World Challenge. Jansher Khan (world No 1) takes on Peter Marshall, 21, the English No 1 who broke into the world's top 10 this summer. In the other semi-final, Chris Dittmar (No 2) meets Rodney Martin (No 3) in an all-Australian match. Martin travelled to the World Open Championship in Johannesburg last week as champion, but was beaten in the semi-finals by Dittmar, who lost the final to Jansher. Marshall went out at the quarter-final stage, but not without beating Jahangir Khan, the six-times world open champion, in the second round. Such is the talent on show. The first semi-final is at 7pm on Sunday, with the final at the same time on Monday.

How to get there: Edgbaston Priory Club, Sir Harry's Road, Edgbaston, central Birmingham is a five-minute taxi-ride from New Street railway station. Admission: pounds 10 for each session. First semi-final starts at 7pm, followed by the second. The final is at 7pm on Monday. (021-440 2492).
