All-England Blazer

Written by Geoff Hinder

 All-England Blazer

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.
