The Thornlee Trophy

In 1973, The Thornlee Trophy, presented by Orchardhill Badminton Club, was introduced to award the overall best performing club at the Thornlee tournament. Players represent their clubs across events, earning points that go towards the total for their club. Points are awarded as follows:

  • Champion: 6 points
  • Runner-up: 5 points
  • Semi Finalist: 4 points
  • Quarter finalist: 3 points
  • Consolation winner: 2 points
  • Consolation runner-up: 1 point

Singles players are awarded the full points, whereas doubles pairings split the points between them.

We also recognise the MVPs (Most Valueable Players) of the tournament – competitors who earned the most points for their club towards the Thornlee Trophy.
