In the group stage of proceedings a 3-1 win had been recorded against the Malaysian combination formed by Wong Qi Shen and Amos Ling Yi Heng; in the final it was exactly the same.
Wong Qi Shen gave his team the perfect start by beating Li Hsin-Yu but that was the end of success. Tai Ming-Wei beat both Amos Ling Yi Heng (11-4, 11-4, 4-11, 11-3) and Wong Qi Shen (11-9, 11-8, 11-3, 11-4), whilst sandwiched in between partnering Li Hsin-Yu to doubles success (11-5, 13-15, 11-5, 11-7).
Titles for Chinese Taipei, in the cadet boys’ team and cadet girls’ team events it was success for Hong Kong; in fact in the latter it was both gold and silver.
At the final hurdle, Phoebe Hui Wai and Yenn Ho Hing recorded a 3-1 success in opposition to colleagues Chelsea Chan Shiu Lam and Wong Hoi Ting. Mainstay of the victory was Phoebe Hui Wai; she accounted for both Chelsea Chan Shiu Lam (11-9, 12-10, 6-11, 12-10) and Wong Hoi Ting 11-8, 7-11, 14-12, 11-8).
