PARA BADMINTON WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS
Additionally, further to the BWF update of 25 July (linked here), BWF wishes to advise that after thorough consideration of the current COVID-19 situation, it has been decided that it is not feasible to host the BWF Para Badminton World Championships 2021 on its original dates in October (25-31).
As such, the BWF Para Badminton World Championships 2021 is postponed until further notice. This decision has been made in consultation with the host.
The current requirements for travelling and entering Japan, as well as significantly increased costs for participating players related to COVID-19 safety, would make it impossible for broad participation across all regions and countries.
BWF is tracking all the amendments to the calendar due to the impact of Covid-19 on the announcements page – linked here.
Please continue to look at the Para badminton calendar regularly (linked here) and watch out for announcements and updates.
