March 22nd - 27th 2022, St. Jakobshalle Basel


The YONEX Swiss Open 2021 was able to announce a record number of registrations. More than 600 badminton players from 49 nations registered for the Basel tournament.
The great interest of the athletes stemmed from the fact that important points on the way to the Olympic Games in Tokyo will be awarded in the St. Jakobshalle and that the players worldwide were happy to finally be able to play again. The Swiss Open could therefore boast an outstanding field. Among them were Viktor Axelson and Carolina Marin, currently the best European singles players. But other big names such as crowd favourite Saina Nehwal or Sindhu Pusarla, who was crowned world champion at the World Championships in Basel, were also at the start of the Yonex Swiss Open.
