The trophy was donated to Phoenix Badminton Club by former member Jim Pitcairn - Hill when he left to work in America. His wish was that an annual tournament would be played by all registered club members. Taking place at the end of each match season, usually April / May. Pairings were randomly drawn from the list of members, resulting in combinations of Mixed, Men's and sometimes Ladies pairs. Handicaps for each pairing were allocated according to ability, strength, experience and match play.
This Tournament was always a popular Phoenix Club event.
In 2015 a new trophy was donated by Phoenix Badminton Club and the first tournament was played 5th May.

Missing years were seasons when the Committee decided not to hold a tournament due to a diminished membership or lack of organisation.
