Published by : BWF
The Badminton World Federation (BWF) has successfully completed a review process to publish the revamped BWF Tournament Calendar for 2022, which will culminate with the season-ending HSBC BWF World Tour Finals in Guangzhou, China.

The HSBC BWF World Tour calendar is based on the principle of cluster tournaments primarily throughout Asia as well as traditional European tournament stops where the prospect of travel in that region is more viable.

BWF is still discussing whether additional Super 100 tournaments will be added to the revamped calendar. Final details will be shared when available.

BWF Tournament Calendar 2022
BWF Secretary General Thomas Lund said: “The goal has always been to put player safety first and with the success of the Asian Leg in January 2021 in Thailand serving as a gateway for international competitions to resume, the BWF Tournament Calendar for 2022 has a number of cluster tournaments planned to mitigate the complexity surrounding cross-border travel.

“It is likely that tournaments in 2022 will have BWF safety provisions around them. However, BWF hopes to gradually transition to conducting tournaments with fewer COVID-19 restrictions in 2022 as we slowly return to normalcy with less limitations on hosting international events.”
