Japan and Thailand will stage the next two editions of the BWF Para Badminton World Championships. The respective hosts were awarded the prestigious event following a vote by BWF Council on Monday night.

BWF was fortunate to have four high quality bids for both editions of the championships. Japan Para Badminton Federation came out just ahead of Badminton Peru for 2021, while Badminton Association of Thailand got the nod over Badminton Canada for 2023.

A thorough process was undertaken to evaluate the bids against the criteria, and following bid presentations on Monday, the BWF Council discussed at length the merits of each bid before coming to a decision.

It was clear that all bids would serve to benefit Para badminton athletes and further the development of Para badminton globally. However, the BWF Council determined that Japan and Thailand provided the best, most sustainable framework to deliver the highest standard of tournament possible, and ultimately, the best athlete experience.

Badminton Canada and Badminton Peru continue to be an important host destination for BWF sanctioned international Para badminton competitions.

BWF thanks all bidding teams for their dedicated interest and commitment to supporting Para badminton development.
