About

He was a British badminton, tennis and chess player. He was twice British Chess Champion and a 21-time All-England Badminton champion. He also played in the semi-finals of the men\'s tennis doubles at Wimbledon in 1911[1]. Badminton\'s world men\'s team championships cup, equivalent to tennis\'s Davis Cup, is named Thomas Cup after him.
Thomas lived most of his life in London and Godalming. He never married, so the hereditary Thomas baronetcy ended on his death. He was admired for his fine sportsmanship.
