Henning Borch

Henning Borch is one of the six players who won a cup from All England that he could keep. This was made possible with three victories in men’s doubles in a row in the years 1967, 1968 and 1969 with Erland Kops. They defeated Svend Andersen/Per Walsøe in 1967, legendary Ng Boon Bee/Tan Yee Khan (Malaysia) the year after and in 1969 they beat David Eddy/R.A. Poweil.
Henning Borch also reached the final in 1959 with Jørgen Hammergaard Hansen but lost to the Malays Lim Say Hup/Teh Kew San. In 1964 Henning Borch also reached the final in men’s singles. The trump card from Denmark – Erland Kops – was out of the way in this tournament but it was still an all-Danish final between Knud Aage Nielsen and Henning Borch. “Pytte”, as Borch was called, lost the draw in a well-played and long match. He won the first set 15-8 but lost the next two sets 14-17, 4-15.
Henning Borch became Danish Champion in singles in 1963, in men’s doubles in 1967 with Jørgen Mortensen and in 1968 and 1969 with Erland Kops.
He also has four Nordic Championships, in 1963 in men’s doubles with Knud Aage Nielsen, in 1966 and 1967 with Erland Kops and in 1963 in mixed doubles with Ulla Rasmussen (later Strand).
Henning played for the national team 42 times from 1958-1973.
