KUALA LUMPUR: The Badminton World Federation on Tuesday decided to freeze the World Rankings and World Junior Rankings until further notice due to the calendar being affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
BWF said that standings as on March 17 will be the basis for entry and seedings when it restarts the international calender. “The Badminton World Federation (BWF) can announce it will freeze World Rankings and World Junior Rankings until further notice. The freezing of rankings will be backdated to Week 12, which is the week following the last international tournament that was played the YONEX All England Open 2020,” BWF said in a statement.
“The ranking lists issued on March 17, 2020 will serve as a basis for entry and seeding into the next international tournaments although it is difficult to say at this stage when this may be,” it added. (AGENCIES)
