The Australian team for the 2015 King’s Cup World Sepak Takraw Championships has been confirmed and entered into the annual world championship which is to be held in Bangkok, Thailand between the 4th and 10th of May this year.
We’re sending a squad of 10 players, and for the first time ever Australia will enter all four events at King’s Cup – Regu, Doubles, Hoop, and Team Event.
From Brisbane: Veng Thao, Pheng Thao, Jesse Xiong, and Nhia Xiong
From Cairns: Nee Lor and Ku Lor
From Darwin: Alex Newman (captain), Daniel Ellen-Barwell, and Garry Condoseres
From Melbourne: Tou Moua Yang
This is year of firsts for the Australian national men’s team as this is the first year we’ll be entering all four events, and the first year we’ve had players from Cairns join the team. Six of the players in the team have previously represented Australia, whilst four of the players are new to international competition.We hope by sending such an ambitious squad that we can encourage more people in Australia to support and participate in the sport of sepak takraw.
As the entire team is still self funded we are conducting a crowd funding campaign to raise money for the team to help us offset the costs of flights. If you can spare a few dollars to help the team out for this competition we would be most appreciative! We are also seeking sponsorship for the team, this can either be done via our crowdfunding campaign or contact us directly at if you’re interested in a commercial proposition for our team.
