New Delhi, Feb 11 (PTI) The upcoming Yonex German Open 2021 was on Thursday cancelled owing to restrictions imposed in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tournament was to be held in Mülheim an der Ruhr from March 9-14.

The German Badminton Association made the decision 'in consultation and agreement' with the Badminton World Federation (BWF), the sport's global governing body said in a statement.

'The ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and complications left local organisers no choice but to cancel the tournament,' the BWF added.

The YONEX German Open is a Super 300 tournament on the HSBC BWF World Tour.

The new-look BWF calendar, which was released last December, sees a number of tournaments postponed from first and second quarters of the season, and a handful of Grade 2 tournaments cancelled. PTI AH AH KHS KHS
