The Badminton Association of India (BAI) on Monday decided to postpone all domestic tournaments scheduled for April and May, keeping in mind the exponential rise in coronavirus cases in the country.

India has recorded cases in excess of one lakh in the last 24 hours.

Worried at the trend, the BAI advised all the stakeholders to postpone the events, starting with this month’s senior ranking tournament scheduled in Bengaluru from April 18-25.

The junior and sub-junior tournaments, scheduled for the month of May in Hyderabad and other events at different venues have also been postponed.

In its communications to all affiliated state units, BAI secretary Ajay Kumar Singhania wrote that the prevailing situation has forced them to take such a step.

“In view of the present pandemic situation, considering the health safety of the players, technical officials, President has advised to postpone the All India Ranking tournaments till further orders,” Singhania wrote in his letter.
