The decisions of USA Badminton and Badminton Canada were made in consultation and agreement with the BWF. The ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and complications left local organisers no choice but to cancel the tournaments.
The BWF confirms that the Badminton Asia Individual Championships due to be hosted in China, 27 April to 02 May 2021, has been postponed with dates to be confirmed.
The continental championship was to count towards the Race to Tokyo Rankings, however as it is not possible to reschedule the tournament within the Olympic Qualification period, the points will no longer be included.
As per the Revised Olympic Qualification System for Tokyo 2020, no replacement tournament will be added.
