Although Mervyn reached the Quarter Finals of the CFC International Open in 2016 the end of season points shuffle meant that he had not gained enough points to hold onto his placing and Mervyn has slipped to No 10 in the WBT Rankings for the coming 2016-17 season.

A true master of the draw game, Mervyn is highly respected on the rinks and with his 6 WBT Titles already under his belt he will be looking to regain his lost points this season at the expense of others.

Mervyn has 8 semi-final and 21 quarter final appearances and winning the World Indoor Singles in 2006 & 2014 he has the respect of all players who come up against him in any of the WBT Ranking events singles draws.
