From 22 to 27 March 2022, one of the world's largest and most important HSBC World Tour tournaments took place in the modern St. Jakobshalle Basel. At the world ranking tournament with a prize money of USD 200,000, important qualification points for the World Championships in Tokyo were played for. Many top badminton players from about 50 nations played in Basel. The fastest sport (smashes of over 400 km/h!) was presented in an attractive environment: Asian restaurant, bars, sales and information stands provided entertainment and culinary highlights next to the centre court.
Live streaming, live scoring and TV broadcasts in around 30 countries with over 250 million households brought the top badminton event out into the big world.
