Badminton's Sudirman Cup is held once every two years. Starting in 1995, China held exclusive ownership of the Cup a whopping 6 times, losing only once, in 2003.

China will send a big squad this time, with 25 players in all. Stars such as Lin Dan and Xie Xingfang are on the list. But about one third of the players will be new faces on the team.
