Two Super 100 badminton tournaments — the Russian Open 2021 and Indonesia Masters — have been cancelled due to COVID-19 related restrictions, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) said on Monday. “The ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and complications left local organisers no choice but to cancel the tournaments,” a BWF statement read.

“The respective decisions of the National Badminton Federation of Russia and Badminton Indonesia were made in consultation and agreement with the BWF,” it added.

The Russian Open was scheduled in Vladivostok from July 20-25 and Indonesia Masters from October 5-10.
