Margaret Varner Bloss was an American athlete and professor of
physical education from El Paso, Texas who excelled in three
distinctly different racket sports: badminton, squash, and tennis.
She is the only person to have represented the USA at the highest
level of international competition in all three sports. She is also
the only person to have won the U.S. national singles championships
of both badminton and squash or to have been inducted into the
respective U.S. halls of fame of both sports. Perhaps Ms. Varner's
most impressive accomplishments came in badminton, which she took
up at Texas University for Women in the late 1940s, having already
gained prominence in junior and collegiate tennis. In 1955 and 1956
she won consecutive Women's Singles titles at the All-England
Championships, then the world's most prestigious badminton
tournament for individual players. She was a runner-up in the All
England Singles in 1957, 1958 and 1960, and shared the Doubles
title in 1958
