Malaysia Open (badminton)

The Malaysia Open is an annual badminton tournament that has been held since 1937. It has been played in various locations such as Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Penang, Selangor, and Kuantan.

The event's annual pattern was interrupted three times: from 1942 to 1946, because of World War II, from 1969 to 1982, and in 2020, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It became one of the BWF Super Series tournaments beginning in 2007. It is now also known as the Malaysia Super Series. BWF categorised Malaysia Open as one of the five BWF World Tour Super 750 events as per new BWF events structure since 2018.[1]
