Important information regarding the YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships 2020 and the coronavirus

Badminton England is keen to provide reassurance to those players, officials, volunteers and fans regarding the coronavirus in China and its potential impact on the YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships.

We are speaking to Public Health England on a regular basis and also taking their advice to monitor the daily information posted to their website. We are also in regular dialogue with the Badminton World Federation and Arena Birmingham.

On the basis of the advice we are receiving, and the Government risk status to individuals being low, Badminton England is continuing with its plans to host the YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships.

The health and wellbeing of those joining us for the Championships in Birmingham is our primary concern. Any further updates will be posted to the YONEX All England Open Badminton Championships website [www.allenglandbadminton.com] and the Badminton England website [www.badmintonengland.co.uk], in addition to our social media channels.

We look forward to welcoming the players, officials, volunteers and fans from across the world to Arena Birmingham from 11- 15 March 2020.
