From 1904 until the 1970s All-England Champions were entitled to wear this blazer. This All-England blazer was donated to the National Badminton Museum by Heather Nielsen nee Ward (England) who, with Margaret Varner (USA), won the 1958 All-England Woman’s Doubles Championship. Heather Nielsen also won the 1959 All-England Woman’s Singles Championship. We have had the blazer framed and is on display at the National Badminton Museum, Milton Keynes.
Thank you to all the ‘Friends of the Museum’ and people who have made donations to the Museum, your support enables us to purchase for the National Collection extremely rare badminton artefacts when they become available.
The Museum’s latest project is to replace all the non-museum standard display cases, this will enable us to display objects without dust pollution and UV light damage.
Please can you help with this project.
