Normally, a badminton player wins the National Championship before entering the international scene. However, this was not the case with Poul Petersen, who won the All England championship in men’s doubles with Tom Bacher in 1970 before he was able to call himself national champion.
He won his first National Championship in men’s doubles in 1972 with Per Walsøe and then repeated the victory in both 1973 and 1974 with Svend Pri.
In addition, Tom and Poul won the Nordic Championship in 1972. Poul played for Denmark in the beginning of the 1970s.
