Syed Modi International

June 21:  The Badminton World Federation announced at the weekend it will upgrade the India Open to a BWF Super 750 event from its existing Super 500 status and retain Syed Modi International in its World Tour calendar.

The change will come into effect starting the 2023 season.

India Open’s elevation in status materialised after the world badminton governing body decided to expand the BWF World Tour from 2023 to 2026. The move will see the number of events on the tour go up to 31, including the season-ending BWF World Tour Finals, from the existing 27.
