Tracey Hallam, Simon Archer and Julia Mann will spearhead the Midlands challenge in this weekend's English National Championship in Manchester.
The trio are seeded for the three-day event, which begins tomorrow at the Velodrome, but Warwick-shire's interest is further enhanced by Jill Pittard, Chris Tonks and Mark Con-stable, who are also seeds.
Hallam, the 2004 champion from Burton-on-Trent, is top seed in the women's singles and enters the competition in the second round against Hampshire's Hana Littlecott. But she is likely to have to face fourth seed Mann in the semi-finals. Mann, from Solihull, is chasing a ninth national title to take the outright record she shares with Gillian Gilks.
Pittard, from Coventry, is the No 3 seed and is scheduled to meet Jersey's defending champion Elizabeth Cann in the last four.
Archer, who won the men's doubles with Anthony Clark last season, will team up with David Lindley (Notts) as the Worcester doubles star seeks a 16th national title. Archer and Lindley are seeded two but Solihull's rising star Chris Tonks, and his partner Chris Langridge, the fourth seeds, are likely to stand in their way in the semi-finals.
Coventry-born Constable, who helped Warwickshire win the Inter-County title last year, is making his comeback for Jersey where he coaches their Commonwealth Games squad.
He is eighth seed in the men's singles and partners Lucy Burns in the mixed.
