Former British number-one tennis player Tim Henman will be visiting the show for the second time while ex-England goalkeeper David Seaman, former England cricket captain Alec Stewart and snooker star Willie Thorne will all be making their third visit to the event.

All four are attending as ambassadors for TaylorMade which will be showcasing its latest products on the huge indoor driving range.

There will also be three famous newcomers in Arsenal legend Ian Wright, Royle Family actor Ralf Little – both with Taylor Made – and another man to have represented England between the sticks, Peter Shilton.

As well as taking in the hundreds of products being exhibited at the show, the celebrities will compete on the show’s big attractions including the longest drive and 100ft putt competitions.

They will also appear on the show’s stage being interviewed and playing the unique golf gameshow Shankety Shank, as part of the full daily schedule of stage activity.

Speaking at last year’s show, Seaman said: “It’s a great show. I love coming up here every year. It’s just getting bigger and bigger every time and there’s all sorts here, everything you need to know about golf.

“Shows like this are great for golf. It gets all the companies in one place so you can walk round and test different products against each other.”

The NEC Golf Show takes place at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre from 27-29 November and will showcase everything golf from big-brand equipment to the latest gadgets and the best places to play and stay.
