The 29-year-old from Leatherhead will represent England in the team event, men's doubles and mixed doubles.
"Badminton almost has it tougher than some other sports as we have Malaysia, Singapore and India who are very good nations," he said.


"It'll be hard to get a medal but it'd be amazing to come back with one."

 

"It's a big event for people in sport but maybe not a massive event for people in badminton as they don't deem it as big as the Worlds, Europeans or Olympics."
"For me it is a prestigious event as you have to be selected. I am really hoping I can come away with a medal or two."
"We start with the team event and then I've got men's doubles and mixed doubles. It is quite a lot of games over a long period of time."
Langridge has recently signed for Surrey Smashers in the inaugural National Badminton League and believes the new domestic competition could improve the strength of the game in England.
"The league is really exciting because, as players, we have been suggesting it is a great idea," he said.
"The best country in badminton in Europe is Denmark, and they have had a fantastic league for a very long time. I believe that is one reason why they are so good - because of their club system."
