Akita Masters 2022 – Akita, Japan – 26 – 31 July (Super 100)
BWF confirms that the Akita Masters 2022 has been cancelled. Nippon Badminton has reluctantly come to this decision in discussions with the BWF. The strict COVID-19 protocols required by the local health authorities made the hosting of the event this year, no longer feasible.
Please continue to look at the calendar regularly (linked here) and watch out for announcements and updates. BWF also has a running record of all of the adjustments to the calendar due to COVID-19 related issues (linked here).
