Indonesia has four titles ahead of China, which became queen in the 2000s. China, which last won the title in 2018, now has 10 titles.

The start of Indonesia’s glory in the Thomas Cup event was marked by the presence of Tan Joe Hok and his friends who climbed to the top step of the podium in 1958.

Indonesia then continued their glory in 1961 and 1964. Interrupted because they were conquered by Malaysia in 1967, Indonesia were once again unwavering as Thomas Cup sovereigns in 1970, 1973, 1976 and 1979 .

The dry spell of success in the Thomas Cup event came after their victory in 2002. Along with the dominance of China, the Indonesian team often failed to qualify for the final.

From 2004 to 2018, Indonesia have been in the final only twice. Indonesia must recognize the superiority of China in the 2010 final and Denmark in 2016.

Indonesia’s triumph in the Thomas Cup was again achieved in the 2020 Thomas Cup which took place in 2021 by toppling China 3-0.
