U.S. Open Badminton Championships
The U.S. Open Badminton Championships is an annual badminton tournament first held in 1954 when the American Badminton Association (now USA Badminton) opened the U.S. National Badminton Championships to foreign competition. During the 1950s and 1960s it often attracted the world's top players. It has begun to do so again with this year's event, the 2015 Yonex Suffolk County Community College US Open Championships, being held in Brentwood, NY, attracting Malaysia's superstar Lee Chong Wei as well as 9 others in the top 30 MS competitors. Indeed, all of the 5 events (Men's Singles, Women's Singles, Men's Doubles, Women's Doubles, Mixed Doubles) have at least 6 top 25 competitors in their draws. This is the second year that the event has been held on the east coast at Suffolk County Community College using their top quality venue with stadium-style seating and excellent special event lighting and staging.
