Further to our Memo of 20 March (linked here) related to the postponement of the TOTAL BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals 2020 and the BWF Members’ Forum and AGM we wish to provide you with an update on these two important events on the 2020 calendar.
BWF and Badminton Denmark confirms that both parties are aware of yesterday’s announcement by the Danish Government to extend a ban on “larger gatherings” in Denmark until the end of August. This announcement comes as the Danish government said it would begin the first steps to gradually relax COVID-19 restrictions in Denmark as early as next week.
BWF and Badminton Denmark are currently seeking clarification from the Danish authorities on the definition of “larger gatherings” and how this might affect the ability to stage the TOTAL BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals 2020 on the rescheduled dates of 15-23 August and the BWF AGM and Members’ Forum.
BWF advises that Members should not make any bookings or commitments until the situation in Denmark is clearer and the BWF has communicated what the status is with both the TOTAL BWF Thomas and Uber Cup Finals 2020 and the BWF Members’ Forum and AGM.
We thank you for your patience at this time.
We hope that all personnel in our global badminton community are taking appropriate measures as advised by local health authorities to stay safe and stay well during this unprecedented time of COVID-19.
BWF will come back to you as soon as it has more information on the above events in Aarhus, Denmark.
