"We gave a great deal of thought to the pricing and felt that it would be a great opportunity for many youngsters and their families to see the very best players in action. One of the best ways to attract youngsters into the game is to show them how exciting it can be at the very top," said Event Director Mike Holt.
He added: "There's no better opportunity to see the best players than at the English Open which last year was voted the best Pro Tour event in the world." said Holt who received the award from the International Table Tennis Federation in Moscow.
"We are committed to providing the best possible action at a competitive price and in this acute economic climate that's what we are setting out to do," he added.
