NOTIFICATION RE:

Postponement of Badminton Ontario’s Delayed 2020-2021 Season

To all District Member Associations:

We are writing as a follow-up to the notice circulated on August 11, 2020 surrounding Badminton Ontario’s decision for a delayed start to the 2020-2021 Competition Season.  Further to that decision, the PSO still believes that it is in the best interest and safety of the athletes, officials, coaches, volunteers, staff, and sport to further delay the 2020-2021 competition season.

As a result, we would like to inform you that Badminton Ontario is currently not in the position to deliver tournaments and events in the month of October given the landscape caused by COVID-19. 

We will be cancelling the events tentatively scheduled for October and will be attempting to work with the host facilities surrounding the possibility to reschedule certain events for a later date.  Once again, we will continue to monitor the situation and address the ability to deliver tournament events on a month by month basis

Updates will be communicated frequently as well as posted on the website; and we hope that the situation will change in the near future for Badminton Ontario to address and share a safe Return to Play Plan

Thank you for your time and ongoing effort in the badminton community.

We hope you continue to stay safe during this time.

On behalf of the Competitions Committee and Board of Directors,

Sincerely,

Jean Wong

Technical Director
Badminton Ontario
