Grove is very happy to welcome Cao Yupeng into their team.
Cao Yupen, born October 27, 1990 in Guangzhou qualified for the Main Tour by winning the 2011 Asian Under-21 Championship. In 2011/12, his first season on the circuit he reached the last 16 of the World Championship, showing his quality.
He started the 2014/15 season ranked n° 46, his highest ever ranking. He reached the last 16 in the Wuxi Classic 2014 but otherwise had a very quiet year, dropping to n°60 at the end of the season.
The 2015/16 season was a very disappointing one for Cao. He didn’t get past the last 64 in any event and, as a consequence, lost his professional status. But he bounced back immediately: he entered the Q-School 2016 and re-qualified for the main tour immediately by reaching the SF of Event 1. He now has another two years card.
