The decision comes following the withdrawal of a number of participating teams f
rom the TOTAL BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals and the European leg of the adjuste
d HSBC BWF World Tour.
BWF, in collaboration with Badminton Denmark, has for many months been preparing
for a safe return to international badminton. This includes going to extreme le
ngths to preserve the health and safety of all participants such as implementing
a bubble system to create a safe badminton ecosystem.
However, in view of the recent COVID-19 related developments around the world, a
number of teams and individual players have elected not to travel to Denmark fo
r tournaments in Aarhus and Odense; a choice the BWF has to respect and acknowle
These are exceptional circumstances we find ourselves in and while a return to i
nternational badminton remains a priority for the BWF, the health and safety of
the entire badminton community is of utmost importance.
Therefore, after lengthy discussions with key stakeholders, commercial partners
and participating Member Associations, it has been realised that we are not in a
position to deliver the level of competition reasonably expected by fans and al
l stakeholders, and as a result have decided that we will not stage this year’s
TOTAL BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals on the dates 3-11 October 2020.
BWF is looking into possible alternative dates to reschedule the World Men’s an
d Women’s Team Championships, but on dates not before into 2021.
Meanwhile, the DANISA Denmark Open 2020 in Odense, a HSBC BWF World Tour Event,
will proceed as originally planned in the BWF Tournament Calendar (13-18 October
). The event will also be used as an opportunity to implement relevant COVID-19
Safety Protocols and Operating Procedures for the planned restart of internation
al badminton tournaments.
The second tournament scheduled for Odense – the VICTOR Denmark Masters 2020 –
slated for 20-25 October has been cancelled as it is no longer feasible to cond
uct this additional event.
A study into the continued feasibility of the planned Asian leg of the adjusted
HSBC BWF World Tour (three HSBC BWF World Tour tournaments hosted in an Asian lo
cation) is being conducted and BWF will make further announcements as soon as de
tails are clarified.
