Teams

14 teams from 4 regions took part in the competition. As defending champion, Japan skipped the qualifications and played directly in the second round of the inter-zone ties (team matches), effectively the semifinals of the tournament.

From the qualifying rounds, four countries progressed to the inter-zone ties. From the Australasian zone, Australia advanced to the next round after beating New Zealand 4–3. From the Asian zone the Malaysian team beat India 6–1. In the European zone final England defeated Denmark 5–2. From the Pan American zone, Canada advanced to the inter-zone ties after defeating the United States 5–2.

Final round

Japan played in its fourth consecutive Uber Cup final, having won the tournament in 1966, 1969, and 1972. The Japanese women won two of the three singles, but dropped all four doubles to the Indonesian women who were playing before their home crowd. Indonesia thus won the Uber Cup for the first time. It was the final Uber Cup appearance of two great "veterans", Japan's Noriko Nakayama (née Takagi), who completed her fourth campaign undefeated in singles, and Indonesia's Minarni Soedaryanto who, after playing on Indonesian teams since 1959, finally achieved the ultimate prize.
