Qualification

The Olympic qualification period was originally scheduled to take place between 29 April 2019 and 26 April 2020, and the Badminton World Federation rankings list, scheduled to publish on 30 April 2020. Now the Olympic qualification period takes place between 29 April 2019 and 6 June 2021, and the Badminton World Federation rankings list, scheduled to publish on 15 June 2021, will be used to allocate spots.[3] Nations can enter a maximum of two players each in the men's and women's singles, if both were ranked in the world's top 16; otherwise, one quota place until the roster of thirty-eight players had been completed. Similar regulations also apply to the players competing in the doubles, as the NOCs can enter a maximum of two pairs if both were ranked in the top eight, while the remaining NOC's were entitled to one until the quota of 16 highest-ranked pairs was filled. Additional rules ensure that each continent is represented in every event, guarantee the host at least one quota place in each individual event, and assign additional quota places if players qualify in multiple events.
