After a mighty few days of competition at the VICTOR Oceania Championships, selected Australian Falcons women flew to Bangkok, Thailand to compete at the TotalEnergies BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals 2022 – the Badminton World Federation women’s team championships.
From the team of 9 players, 5 women were from our Victorian community:
- Joyce CHOONG (2G Sports)
- Kaitlyn EA (Infinity Badminton Association)
- Sydney GO (HP Badminton)
- Louisa MA (Badminton Academy of Victoria Australia)
- Gronya SOMERVILLE (Play Badminton)
Also named as part of the Coaching team were Victorians Stuart Brehaut and Jeff Tho!
The team had a tough road ahead of them, with a tough round robin box of teams from China, Chinese Taipei and Spain. In the end, the Australians conceded defeat and finished the Uber Cup Finals in 13/16th place.
Congratulations on the amazing effort from our Aussie and Victorian women!
