The 2020 Thomas and Uber Cup may be postponed for the third time. According to Bahrain, the team competition may be expected in January or February 2021.
Badminton World Federation (BWF) tentatively scheduled the date for Thomas and Uber Cup from 3 to 11 October 2020 in Aarhus, Denmark. BWF had arrived at this date after postponing two earlier dates.
The current restriction of 500 people in Denmark is in effect at least until 1st September. However, there is growing concern this restriction will be extended further.
Badminton Association of Malaysia’s coaching director Wong Choong Hann is, however, not much concerned about the lack of tournaments during this period. He said there will be no shortage in motivation from the players.
He said, “I feel that it will not affect the psychology of the players. So it doesn’t matter to the team if it is delayed again because the most important thing right now is our preparation.”
