Welsh Open International 25th-28th November 2020
It is with regret that Badminton Wales announce the cancellation of the 2020 Welsh International Badminton Championships.
The Championships were due to be held in Sport Wales National Centre, Cardiff 25th -28th November and is the flagship event for Badminton Wales, traditionally welcoming players and officials from all over the world.
Badminton Wales CEO Kelly Aston MBE said, “The decision to cancel this year’s Welsh International has been taken due to the ongoing situation across the country caused by the Global Pandemic. It is very disappointing to have to make this decision but after much consideration it was felt there was no other option”.
“The risk to the players, coaches, officials, volunteers and organisers was too high to allow the Welsh International to go ahead. Adding the financial and operational obligations of staging the International and uncertainty over travel and the possibility of quarantines or local lockdowns being announced at short notice we have taken the decision to cancel the event now rather than waiting until closer to the Competition”.
Badminton Wales will now be looking forward to staging the 2021 Welsh International in Cardiff 1st – 4th December.
