Ms Elliott said that these six combinations had earned their place on the squad with strong performances in the early season four-star competitions in Badminton and Luhmuhlen.
However, she pointed out that the combinations would have to demonstrate continuing good form to stay on the squad and that other combinations could be added if they put in strong performances.
"There are other combinations who have previous four-star or championship form but who have yet to put in performances this season to justify putting them on the squad at this stage. However, I will be watching their results and I may add them to the list. There are also some up and coming combinations who I would not fully rule out. It's a long way to the Games and a lot can happen," she said.
However Ms. Elliot said that she was pleased with the six combinations that had come through.
"So far in 2010 fourteen Irish combinations have competed at four-star level and these six have come through very strongly. There is a really good mix of youth and experience and I just hope they all stay sound and do well in their upcoming competitions," she said.
