The two pairs are rivals for inclusion in Team GB for next year's Olympics and meet in the first round in Odense.

Blair and White won the only previous meeting of the Anglo-Scottish pairs in Germany in March.

Fellow Brits Nathan Robertson and Jenny Wallwork take on Japan's Shintaro Ikeda and Reiko Shiota.

Robertson and Wallwork (12) have the highest world ranking of the three pairs with Adcock and Bankier ranked 15th and Blair and White 19th.

The Denmark Open begins on 18 October and is one of five events in the World Super Series 2011 circuit.

Bankier and Blair hail from Scotland while all of the British players involved in the event in Denmark are English.
