Thomas and Uber Cup rescheduled to October 2021
LONDON: The 2020 Thomas and Uber Cup Finals in Denmark, which were postponed this year after the withdrawal of several teams amid the Covid-19 pandemic, will take place in October next year, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) said on Monday.
The biennial championship was originally scheduled for May but was first postponed to August due to the Covid-19 crisis before being moved to Oct. 3-11 when the Danish government extended its ban on large gatherings.
It was moved again after South Korea, Indonesia, Australia, Taiwan and Thailand pulled out.
"It has been decided that the Championships will be hosted in Aarhus, Denmark in the last part of 2021 in Week 41, as part of a tournament cluster in Denmark with the Denmark Open in Week 42," the BWF said in a statement. - Reuters
