Just a reminder that there is a lot coming up in 2022 for badminton fans!

There will be an action-packed March in Europe, as there will be BWF Super 300 events in Europe - YONEX GAINWARD German Open (8-13 Mar), and YONEX Swiss Open (22-27), intertwined with circuit trips to Slovakia, Portugal and Polish, finished off by the reliably fun Orleans Masters. 

More historic events to delight the crowd
However, the biggest of the third month will be the historic YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships (16-20 Mar) that will be taking place in Birmingham as it has been doing so since 1994.

Almost a month later, Europe will be hosting yet another huge event, the 2022 European Championships in a yet to be announced location at the end of April. 

In April, the spotlight will also fall on Korea. The Asian nation will be hosting the Korea Open Badminton Championships (5-10 Apr) and the Korea Masters Badminton Championships (12-17).

It will not have been a year since the last Thomas & Uber Cup Finals that took place in October 2021 in Denmark, but the 2022 TOTALENERGIES BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals will be hosted in Bangkok (8-15 May). Many players will be spending more time in Thailand, as the Thailand Open (17-22 May) will be taking place straight after. 

Two huge returns for the summer
The end of this year had players from all over the globe spending a long period in Indonesia and they will be visiting the nation for a couple of weeks once again in June to fight for titles at the Indonesia Masters (7-12 Jun) and the Indonesia Open (14-19 Jun). 

The summer will be bringing fans two more of BEC’s best events back after their cancellations in 2021. The 2022 European Club Championships will take place in Białystok, Poland (28-2 Jul) and the 2022 European Senior Championships in Ljubljana, Slovenia (7-13 Aug). BEC will also set the stage for young talents in Belgrade, Serbia at the 2022 European Junior Championships (18-27 Aug).

The colder weather of autumn will be bringing even more players to Europe with the YONEX Dutch Open (12-16 Oct) and the Denmark Open (18-23 Oct). October will culminate with a historic tournament that boasts one of the world of badminton’s most electric atmospheres. The YONEX French Open will be taking place 25-30 Oct.

A perfect ending in China
As usual, there will be a busy end of the year. While Europe will give fans great entertainment at the HYLO Open (1-6 Nov) and Irish Open (16-19 Nov), Asia will host the Macau Open (1-6 Nov) and YONEX-SUNRISE Hong Kong Open (8-13 Nov). Almost all world continents will be bringing big things to the table, as Oceania will be hosting the CROWN GROUP Australian Open (15-20 Nov) and BARFOOT & THOMPSON New Zealand Open (22-27 Nov). 

This year, it was Indonesia’s turn to offer a great last run to the 2021 calendar with Spain offering the last big show at the World Championships. In 2022, it will be China’s turn to leave the year with a bang. It will all start with the VICTOR China Open (29-4 Dec) to then move onto the Fuzhou China Open (6-11 Dec), and the big farewell to the year will be taking place at the HSBC BWF World Tour Finals Guangzhou (14-18 Dec).
