GB Mens players, Brandon Lamb and Liam Harper (pictured) gave their thoughts on hopes for Championship at the final team camp before heading to the tournament.

Both teams launch their campaigns on Friday August 18th – with GB Women opening their tournament against France at 11am, before facing Czech Republic and Sweden later in the day then Ukraine, Italy and Denmark the following day. GB and France are tipped to dominate, but the gap between the leading and the emerging nations is closing, so surprise results cannot be ruled out.

GB Men also start proceeding against France before moving on to a clash with Slovakia in the afternoon, then Netherlands and Spain the following day in what is being billed the ‘Group of Death’ –  with all teams regarded as evenly matched by neutrals and everything to play for.
