2023 All England Badminton Open

Last updated on July 8, 2023

The 2023 All England Open (official and sponsored title: Yonex All England Open Badminton Championships 2023) was an international badminton tournament that took place at the Utilita Arena Birmingham in Birmingham, England, from 14 to 19 March 2023. The tournament offered a prize pool of US$1,250,000 and was categorized as a Super 1000 event.

The 2023 All England Open was the sixth tournament in the 2023 BWF World Tour calendar and the second Super 1000 event held in the same year. Badminton England organized this tournament with sanctions from the Badminton World Federation (BWF).

Viktor Axelsen and Akane Yamaguchi were the reigning champions in men’s singles and women’s singles, respectively. Viktor Axelsen’s move to defend the All England title was halted in the second round. In three fantastic games, Axelsen surprisingly lost to Commonwealth Games silver medalist Ng Tze Yong of Malaysia. In addition, Yamaguchi also failed to defend her title after losing to Chen Yufei of China in the semi-finals.

Apart from Axelsen, the defending champions in the women’s doubles (Nami Matsuyama and Chiharu Shida) and mixed doubles (Yuta Watanabe and Arisa Higashino) sectors also had to stop in the second round. Meanwhile, the defending champion in the men’s doubles event (Muhammad Shohibul Fikri and Bagas Maulana) was stopped in the quarter-finals.
