Betty Uber (born 1906, died 1983) was an English woman who was a badminton player. She won major badminton titles between the 1930s and the early 1950s.

Career[edit]

Betty Uber won 13 titles at the All England Open Badminton Championships, 1 of them in women's singles, 4 in women's doubles and 8 in mixed doubles.

She was inducted into the World Badminton Hall of Fame as an Inaugural Member.

Uber Cup[edit]

Her surname "Uber" is used for the Uber Cup, the world women's team badminton championship, because she had the idea of hosting the women's event similar to men in New Zealand back in 1950.[1] She also made the draw for the 1956-1957 inaugural tournament, which took place at Lytham St. Annes in Lancashire, England.[2]
