Paul Drinkhall: Britain's sole representative in men's singles
Britain's Paul Drinkhall will face Ibrahem Alhasan of Kuwait or Congo's Saheed Idowu in the first round of the men's singles table tennis event at London 2012.
Drinkhall, who used host nation qualification places to partake in the Games, enters the competition at the first round stage on Saturday.
He is the only Briton in the men's singles and will have a winnable contest first up as both potential opponents, who will battle it out in the preliminary round, sit below him in the world rankings.
Joanna Parker, Team GB's sole entry in the women's singles, will play Brazil's Caroline Kumahara or Djibouti's Yasmin Hassan Farah in her first round match.
In the team events, Parker will be joined by Kelly Sibley and Na Liu while Drinkhall will line up alongside Andrew Baggaley and Liam Pitchford. The men will face Portugal in the opening round while the women take on North Korea.
Women's head coach Alan Cooke said: "The men (in the team event) have got as good a draw as they could have hoped.
"The girls' draw was always going to be very tough; we have seen the North Korean girls on the circuit but we do not know a huge amount about them.
"If Paul and Joanna play well in the singles, they have definitely got chances. The disadvantage is they get an extra match, but that gives us a chance to have a closer look at our opponents.
"We have no complaints. The draw is pretty good for both Paul and Joanna."
