2014 BWF Thomas & Uber Cup Finals



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.

The Uber Cup Finals have been held alongside the Men’s competition since 1984, with both then taking place bi-ennially. The Uber Cup had previously taken place at three yearly intervals separately to the Men’s competition but always with a similar format.

The trophy was presented by another famous player and the person whose original idea it was to start a team Championships for Women, the eponymous Betty Uber. Betty Uber also made the draw for the 1956-7 inaugural tournament which took place at Lytham St Annes in Lancashire, England.

The 2014 edition, the prestigious biennial team championships Thomas Cup and Uber Cup Finals will be hosted in New Delhi capital city of  India from  18-25 May 2014.
