Super Smash 2023 concluded with a huge success

A new record of 644 players participated in 43 events.

Congratulations to all of the winners, and a very sincere thanks to all of the players, volunteers, sponsors, officials, and as well as Synergy Badminton Academy. Without your support, this event would not be possible. Special thanks to those that travelled far from other states and countries. Wishing you a safe trip home.

We always look for ways to improve and bring you the best possible competition experience. We look forward to see all of you again in an even bigger Sonic Smash 2024 (August 2024). Stay tuned.

Open Events Announcement ( )

USA Badminton notified us that they will not have enough technical officials to officiate Super Smash 2023 due to the unusual high number of international and domestic tournaments across the US during the summer months. As a result, the Open events will not be sanctioned.

The cash payout, trophies and medals will remain the same. There will not be any ranking or points awarded by USAB for the Open winners.

Please contact us ( if you have any questions.
