Matthew Chau (born 9 November 1994) is a male national badminton player from Australia. Chau competep in the Men's doubles at the 2016 Summer Olympics alongside Sawan Serasinghe.
Chau picked up his first badminton racquet at age 10, following his parents to the Monash University Badminton Club where they played socially. The now 21-year-old fell in love with the all rounded nature of the sport and says he enjoys that badminton demands speed, strength, endurance, skill, tactical smarts and hard work from its athletes. Chau first partnered with Serasinghe at the 2013 Australian Youth Olympic Festival and the duo went on to secure the Rio quota spot for Australia by winning the 2016 Oceania Championships title. They are currently ranked 46th in the world.
The Melbournian also took home the men’s doubles title at the Waikato International tournament and competed at his first World Championships last year at just 20-years of age in Jakarta, Indonesia. When he is not playing, Chau studies a Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Engineering and enjoys cooking.
