Upon arrival there was a quick opportunity for a couple of the players to enjoy a couple of rallies in the hotel lobby.

China claimed both the Men’s Team and Women’s Team titles at the 2015 edition of the event held in Dubai and the country is aiming to lift the trophies once again in London.

Ma Long will spearhead the challenge for the Chinese male contingent with Fan Zhendong, Xu Xin, Lin Gaoyuan and Yu Ziyang forming the rest of a formidable line-up.

Reigning World and Olympic champion Ding Ning is joined in the women’s squad by Zhu Yuling, Liu Shiwen, Chen Xingtong and Wang Manyu.
