KEY CHANGES TO BWF TOURNAMENT CALENDAR 2021

 

The Badminton World Federation (BWF) can reveal an updated BWF Tournament Calendar for the remainder of 2021. The changes represent the best and most feasible opportunity for badminton tournaments to resume with regularity over the next six months.

 

The next ranking cycle will start immediately following the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The new calendar offers players a safe and consistent platform to earn important world ranking points and prize money in this crucial post-Olympic Games period for the sport.

 

COVID-19 restrictions have meant it is not feasible to conduct tournaments in China this year. Therefore, alternative host cities have been identified for the TotalEnergies BWF Sudirman Cup Finals 2021 and the HSBC BWF World Tour Finals 2021.
