India's second biggest badminton tournament, the India Grand Prix Gold in Lucknow has been postponed by a month to January by the Badminton World Federation (BWF).

"We prefer a January slot for the tournament because many Europeans skipped it as it was played during the Christmas break. Now that the tournament is being held in January, we hope, there will be more European participation," Badminton Association of India (BAI) vice-president TPS Puri told IANS.

The tournament, named after former India international the late Syed Modi, was originally scheduled for Dec 17-22 and will now be played Jan 21-26.
