2012 Thomas Uber cup Continental Confederations Qualifiers

The Thomas Cup or Men’s World Team Championships was first staged in 1948-49, and the Uber Cup or Women’s World Team Championships was added for the first time in 1956-7. The Thomas Cup, taking place every three years, was the BWF’s first major international tournament. The idea for the competition and the donation of the trophy was by the first President of the World body, Sir George Thomas, legendary player (21 All England titles) and administrator of the Sport.
