2017 (Super Series) 2019

The 2018 BWF World Tour, known as 2018 HSBC BWF World Tour for sponsorship reasons, was the first season of the BWF World Tour of badminton, a circuit of 26 tournaments which led up to the World Tour Finals tournament.[1] It replaced the BWF Super Series and BWF Grand Prix, which was held from 2007 to 2017.

It had 27 tournaments, which were divided into five levels: Level 1 was the said World Tour Finals, Level 2 called Super 1000 (three tournaments), Level 3 called Super 750 (five tournaments), Level 4 called Super 500 (seven tournaments) and Level 5 called Super 300 (11 tournaments). Each of these tournaments offered different ranking points and prize money. The highest points and prize pool was offered at the Super 1000 level.

One other category of tournament, the BWF Tour Super 100 level 6, also offered BWF World Tour ranking points. Although this level was not part of the BWF World Tour, it was an important part of the pathway and entry point for players into the BWF World Tour tournaments. When the 11 Level 6 grade tournaments of the BWF Tour Super 100 were included, the complete tour consisted of 38 tournaments.
