The Badminton World Federation (BWF) can confirm the US Open 2021 – a Super 300 tournament on the HSBC BWF World Tour – has been cancelled. The tournament was due to take place from 6-11 July 2021. BWF also confirms the YONEX Canada Open 2021 has been cancelled. The BWF Tour Super 100 tournament was slated for 29 June to 4 July 2021.

The era of semi-professional umpires has dawned in badminton, with members of the first batch appointed by BWF officiating at the Asian Leg in January and at the recently-concluded YONEX Swiss Open 2021. The appointment of Bert Vahorenbeeck (Belgium), Diraj Gooneadry (Mauritius), Fabio Betto (Italy), Iris Metspalu (Estonia), Jiten Bhatt (Australia), Robbertus Tommy Oscariano (Indonesia) and Trish Gubb (New Zealand) is a milestone in BWF’s quest to achieve excellence in officiating.

The Badminton Confederation Africa (BCA) is glad to announce its partnership with Sportrecs, a leading global live streaming platform specialized in hosting sports events. With a common set of goals, BCA and Sportrecs will strive to bring more African badminton events to fans in Africa and elsewhere through Sportrecs’ digital platforms and technical expertise.
