The Syed Modi International Badminton Championship is an HSBC BWF World Tour Super 300 tournament. The tournament was inaugurated by the Uttar Pradesh Badminton Association (UPBA) in 1991 as the ‘Syed Modi Memorial Badminton Tournament' in memory of the 1982 Commonwealth Games men’s singles champion Syed Modi. Held from 1991 to 2003 as a national level tournament, it was then hosted as an international tournament in 2004 but did not continue being hosted until it became part of the BWF Grand Prix level series in 2009. From then on it was hosted annually as an international tournament and was upgraded to a BWF Grand Prix Gold tournament in 2011 where it has been hosted in Lucknow since then.
