Badminton World Federation cancels Taipei Open Super 300

It was scheduled to take place from September 7th to 12th in Taipei City.

The Badminton World Federation (BWF) was forced to take a tough call and cancel the Taipei Open World Tour Super 300 due to complications for organising and staging this event due to COVID-19. It was scheduled from September 7 to 12 and the host city was Taipei.

“Further to Wednesday’s announcement detailing updates to the BWF Tournament Calendar 2021, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) can confirm the YONEX Taipei Open 2021 is now cancelled. This follows unexpected COVID-19 complications regarding the staging of the tournament, leaving local organisers no choice but to cancel. The BWF regrets the sudden change of direction but remains committed to delivering a safe and structured series of badminton tournaments for the rest of the year,” said the apex body as per PTI.


The governing body took a major step for Korea Open and Macau Open and they were both cancelled as well due to the sudden rise of COVID-19 cases in the region which is a matter of serious concern and such big events cant be taken lightly. The apex body cancelled the World Junior Badminton Championship which was scheduled in China.

Indian Player HS Prannoy was not satisfied and was highly disappointed with the development.
