In the doubles competitions, the top two pairs from each group advanced to the quarter-finals. This stage consisted of head-to-head matches from which the winner advanced to the next round. Triggered by the match-fixing scandal in the women’s doubles in London 2012 a random draw to determine places in the quarter-finals was made for all the doubles events.

The Japanese number one seeds [Misaki Matsutomo] and [Ayaka Takahashi] beat the Malaysian pair [Vivian Hoo] and [Woon Khe Wei] in three sets in the quarter-finals and in the semi-final they beat Korean’s [Jeong Gyeong-Eun] and [Shin Seung-Chan], who eventually won the bronze medal with an easy two set victory against China’s [Tang Yuanting] and [Yu Yang]. The Japanese top seeds met the unseeded Danish pair [Christinna Pedersen] and [Kamilla Rytter Juhl] in the final and had to fight hard to win 21-19 in the final third set having lost the first set.
