Indonesian Team Withdrawn from YONEX All England Open 2021

The UK Government’s National Health Service (NHS) Test and Trace service notified Yigit of the necessary self-isolation, with confirmation received by BWF and Badminton England early Thursday morning GMT.

Both BWF and Badminton England want to clarify that the decision to require Indonesian team players and Yigit to self-isolate for 10 days was made independently by the NHS Test and Trace service. This action is in accordance with the UK Government’s COVID-19 protocols and requirements, separate from any guidelines set by BWF and Badminton England.

As a result, BWF and Badminton England had no choice but to follow the NHS directive and withdraw the participants from the tournament.

Credibility and Transparency

This unfortunate circumstance was not something BWF and Badminton England anticipated for the Indonesian team and Yigit from Turkey. Badminton England made impassioned attempts to secure exemptions for the players and explore alternative options for their participation. However, the UK Government’s legislation prioritizes the protection of the British public against COVID-19, and their decision was final and non-negotiable.
