The SAR's troubled women's table tennis team received more bad news with team manager Hui Jun saying he has been left in the dark about the playing format of the team event beginning tomorrow. Only days after two of the mainland-born women players - Lin Ling and Zhang Rui - were both thrown out of the games because they didn't fulfil the necessary residential requirements to compete at the games, Hong Kong were also dealt another blow when Hong Kong were drawn in the same group as China. Hong Kong have also been drawn against hosts South Korea, Singapore, and Pakistan, but Hui said he didn't know how many teams from each group progress to the knock-out stages. 'The organisers have not informed us as to exactly what kind of format we are playing. There are two pools of five teams and we don't know whether the top two team teams go through or the top four teams to the knock-out stages,' said Hui. 'It's frustrating, but we have to get on with it and hopefully we will get a clearer picture in time. The draw will not be easy because we have been drawn against China in the same group. We wanted to avoid China, but what can we do now?' Hong Kong have five team members in the women's team event. Tie Yana, who was reinstated after the Olympic Council of Asia found she had only represented her university at the University Games, will probably play as the SAR's number one. Song Ah-sin and Wong Ching, the player who was admitted in to the competition as a replacement for the banned Zhang Rui, will act as the SAR's number two and number three respectively. The other members are Lau Sui-fei and Kwok Fong-fong.
