The badminton governing body after experimenting with the number of tournaments this year and reviewing the COVID-19 situation has published the World Tour calendar for the year 2022.
The BWF Secretary-General Thomas Lund said, “the BWF Tournament Calendar for 2022 has a number of cluster tournaments planned to mitigate the complexity surrounding cross-border travel, the goal has always been to put player safety first. With the success of the Asian Leg in January 2021 in Thailand served as a gateway for international competitions to resume.”
“It is likely that tournaments in 2022 will have BWF safety provisions around them. However, BWF hopes to gradually transition to conducting tournaments with fewer COVID-19 restrictions in 2022 as we slowly return to normalcy with less limitations on hosting international events.”
The governing body is still in discussion to revamp the current calendar with additional BWF Super 100 tournaments.
Looks like BWF has delivered a jam-packed year, again. All the athletes have to be intelligent in choosing tournaments to play.
