The Friendship Trophy - 'Tazza tal-Hbiberija'

The Hibernians Badminton Club organizes this event in May each year. The first two editions were won by Hibernians (May 1999) and by the English team Barbarians (May 2000). The third edition is now scheduled to be held between the 18th and the 20th May 2001 (both dates inclusive).
