Syed Modi International Badminton Championships

The Syed Modi International Badminton Championships is an international badminton tournament, which is held annually in India.

In 2009, it was turned into a BWF Grand Prix event.[1] Since then the tournament is being annually held in Lucknow at the Babu Banarasi Das Indoor Stadium, although it was temporarily shifted to Hyderabad in 2010.[2][3]

In 2011, it was upgraded to the BWF Grand Prix Gold tournament.[4]

HistoryEdit

The tournament was inaugurated by Uttar Pradesh Badminton Association (UPBA) in 1991 as the 'Syed Modi Memorial Badminton Tournament' in memory of the Commonwealth Games champion Syed Modi.[5]

From its inauguration till 2003, it remained a national-level tournament.[6][7] In 2004, it was organized as an International event for the first time, which saw some low-key foreign participation.[8][9]

The tournament was halted from 2005 to 2008 due to a political impasse between the UPBA and the Government of Uttar Pradesh, which ended with relocation of the Uttar Pradesh Badminton Academy.[10][11][12]
