Ng brothers playing for Canada at Sudirman Cup

Richmond’s Derrick and Toby Ng have been named by Badminton Canada to represent their country at next week’s Sudirman Cup in the Guandong Province of China.
The event, slated for May 10-17, will feature 35 countries competing from some of the most prestigious titles in the sport.

Derrick Ng will be pairing up with Adrian Liu (Prince Rupert) for the men’s doubles competition. The plucky duo, who have a long competitive history together, are current national Champions for the fifth year running, were members of the 2014 Commonwealth Games Team, and took gold in the 2014 Pan Am Badminton Championships for the third consecutive time.

Derrick’s older brother Toby is joining Toronto’s Alex Bruce for the mixed doubles event.
Toby is the current and four-time national mixed doubles champion. He was a member of the 2014 Commonwealth Games Team, and he and Bruce won a gold medal in Mixed Doubles at the 2014 Pan Am Badminton Championships.

Medaling at the Sudirman Cup will carry even greater significance for this year’s athletes, given the 2015 Pan Am Games and 2016 Summer Olympics looming on the horizon.
