August 15, 2018
Badminton Canada is pleased to announce the Yonex Canadian National Team for the 2018-19 season
Badminton Canada is thrilled with the development and talent of our top players in Canada. With our National team making history at the Thomas and Uber Cup this past season and looking further to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, we are confident our Canadian National Team members have the passion and talent necessary to continue their success and help Canada shine at the highest level of badminton.
With 8 of 9 Canadian National Team members receiving carding status from the Government of Canada Athlete Assistance Program for the 2018-19 season, our athletes are receiving support they require from our government partners. In addition, Yonex Canada will once again be the title sponsor of the Canadian National Team, providing our athletes with all of their badminton needs on and off the court.
“We are excited about the success of our national team athletes this past season; with most reaching their highest BWF world ranking to date” said High-Performance Director, Jordan Bridal. “We will look to continue to provide the support and services needed for our national team athletes and are confident that these athletes will help lead Canada to great international success on the road to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.”
