    Default NEWS: Ningbo to hold "Super Grand Prix"

    According to <a target=top_ href="http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/200102/21/eng20010221_63032.html">this article</a>, the "Super Grand Prix" will be held in Ningbo in September. Is Super Grand Prix the same as World Grand Prix Finals?

    I believe it's like an "elite invitational"

    Kind of like the things I want to do... hold tournaments for my viewing pleasure.
    One day perhaps... *sigh*

    A six start invitational with US$225,000 prize money? it sounds more and more like the WGPF the more i read it.

    6* event, by invitation, only inviting the top 16 singles and top 8 doubles pair. that's exactly what the WGPF is... I bet calling it the Super Grand Prix is a mistake in translation.
