On Monday, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) called off the India Open Super 500 and Hyderabad Open Super 100 tournaments and announced a revised international calendar to restore the remaining season that has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The $ 400,000 India Open, which was anticipated to be one of the qualifying events for the Tokyo Olympics, was initially scheduled from 11 to 16 May, but got postponed due to a sudden rise in Covid positive cases. But the $ 1,00,000 Hyderabad Open which is scheduled from August 24 to 29 and Syed Modi India International Super 300 tournament, scheduled from October 12 to 17 in Lucknow will remain unaffected as of now, according to the new calendar.

“A number of tournaments previously classified as postponed from Q1 and Q2 or originally slated for Q3 and Q4 of 2021 have subsequently been cancelled,” said BWF in an official statement.
