KOMPAS.com – Tournament organizers Badminton World Federation (BWF) and Singapore Badminton Association (SBA) have decided to cancel the Singapore Open 2021, which was originally scheduled for June 1-6.

According to BWF, the cancellation was made due to a surge in coronavirus cases globally, which led to complex challenges in managing inbound travel.

“All attempts were made by the organizers and BWF to provide a safe tournament environment for all participants,” the BWF said in a statement on Wednesday, May 12.

BWF will issue a further statement on Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games qualifying at a later date.
