The Badminton World Federation (BWF) is excited to announce its revamped BWF Tournament Calendar for 2022, culminating in the highly anticipated HSBC BWF World Tour Finals in Guangzhou, China.

Streamlined Tournament Schedule

The HSBC BWF World Tour calendar for 2022 focuses on cluster tournaments primarily in Asia, with the addition of traditional European tournament stops that offer more feasible travel options. This strategic approach allows for a smooth and efficient tournament schedule.

Ensuring Player Safety

BWF Secretary General, Thomas Lund, emphasized the organization’s commitment to prioritizing player safety. Following the successful Asian Leg in January 2021, held in Thailand, which paved the way for the resumption of international competitions, the BWF Tournament Calendar for 2022 incorporates a series of cluster tournaments. These clusters help to mitigate the complexities surrounding cross-border travel.

Gradual Return to Normalcy

While it is likely that tournaments in 2022 will still have BWF safety provisions in place, the federation aims to gradually transition to hosting tournaments with fewer COVID-19 restrictions as the world moves towards normalcy. This gradual approach will bring back the thrilling atmosphere of international badminton events, with fewer limitations on hosting.
