The Badminton World Federation (BWF) on Tuesday announced that the Thomas and Uber Cup has been postponed following a series of withdrawals due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tournament, slated to be held in Denmark from October 3 to 11, was set to mark the resumption of international badminton after it came to a halt in March.
“BWF, in collaboration with Badminton Denmark, has for many months been preparing for a safe return to international badminton,” BWF said in a statement.
“However, in view of the recent Covid-19 related developments, a number of teams and individual players have elected not to travel to Denmark for tournaments in Aarhus and Odense; a choice the BWF has to respect and acknowledge,” it added.
Countries that had withdrawn from the tournament included South Korea, Australia, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
