Table tennis is making its fourth ever appearance at the Commonwealth Games this year, and it promises to provide quite a spectacle, as always.

India have had a dominating presence in table tennis in the last two editions, with Achanta Sharath Kamal winning the singles gold medal in 2006 and the doubles gold in 2010 with Subhajit Saha. This time, however, Kamal has not been in the best of form going into the Games, so a medal is not quite a foregone conclusion for India.

At the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, table tennis is one of the most important events, as there would be as many as seven gold medals on offer – three for men, three for women and one for mixed doubles.

Catch the video below showcasing the venue for table tennis in Glasgow, as Scotland’s Craig Howieson talks about his chances and the sport in general:
