    Just wondering about this, there is a 2 weeks break before the world championship for the players to prepare, and then there is a 3 weeks break after it so in 6 weeks time, i probably only watched one tournament.

    then starting from Week 36, there is a GP or even bigger game every week until the year end.... thats at least what i learn from bwf website.

    36 taiwan GPG
    37 china SS
    38 japan SS
    39 indonesia GPG
    39 russian GP
    40 London GPG
    41 dutch GP
    42 denmark SSP
    43 french SS
    44 bitburger GPG
    45 korean GPG
    46 china SSP
    47 hong kong SS
    48 macau GPG
    49 vietname GP
    50 SSF


    and oh, its Christmas!

    isnt it a bit too pack?

    well, usually one can only be fit for 3 tournaments consecutively, and hardly anyone can be top performance for all 3.

    but the thing is, give so much of breaks now, why not pushing some of the competitions earlier, so that at least the players can have more time in traveling and planning their schedule?

    maybe the arenas aren't just set up to cater badminton tournaments but other sporting events, and other sporting events have certain set dates so the organizers decided not to disturb the schedule by shifting tournament dates around?

    yes, week 49 as i indicate there.


    the thing i dont understand is sometimes, the schedule is really quite a mess, taking the most significant example, week 39, which we have Indonesia GPG and russian GP concurrently. Furthermore, Czech IC is also on the same week. taking into consideration that there are SS events on week 37 and 38, and an SSP coming up on week 42, we can assume that the top players wont be joining the events. so we have 3 competitions targeting at similar group of players held within the same week.
