The teams will compete at the championships which will be held in Waikato, New Zealand on 7 - 8 February 2018.
Badminton Australia's National Coach, Lasse Bundgaard reflected on the selection for the 2018 team:
"Australia is aiming to win both the Men's and Women's events which will mean qualification for the Thomas and Uber Cup finals in Thailand in May 2018. More than 40 players nominated - a record high number for this event."
We are pleased to be a part of the growing interest in high-performance Badminton. And with 10 of the 17 Australian Team players hailing from Victoria, we are excited to see them progress further in their sporting careers.
All the best to the players - and hopefully we will see them at the Thomas and Uber Cup Finals held in Thailand in May 2018!
