The BWF would like to give notice that the BARFOOT & THOMPSON New Zealand Open 2020 has been suspended. The BARFOOT & THOMPSON New Zealand Open 2020 was due to be hosted in week 18 in Auckland from 28 April to 3 May 2020.
The escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak globally has led BWF and Badminton New Zealand, in close consultation and consensus with relevant tournament partners, to suspend and postpone the event.
