Badminton Coaching Holiday In Penang
Malaysia had long since been a great nation in producing world class badminton players and coaches. Malaysian or Malayan shuttlers at that time swept through the badminton world in the 1950’s after becoming the first champion in the Thomas Cup in 1949 and successfully retained it in 1952.

Over the years, Penang has not fallen short in producing great badminton players and the history dates back from the 1950’s when a Penangnite Eddy Choong, won several All-England singles and doubles titles to the present time where Lee Chong Wei who is also from Penang has won many major titles around the world and he is the current world number one. In 1966, another great player also from Penang, Tan Aik Huang won the All-England singles title.

Notwithstanding the above, Penang has also produced many badminton players of international calibre who have represented Malaysia in the Thomas Cup Series. The names of these players, to mention a few, are Ooi Teik Hock (1949), Eddy Choong (1953), Teh Kew San (1961), Yew Cheng Hoe (1964), Tan Aik Mong and Ng Tat Wai (1970), Saw Swee Leong (1974), Ong Ewe Hock (1998) and Lee Chong Wei (2004)

"I have personally known Tat Wai for about 40 years. During our playing days, we have both represented Penang on several occasions in inter-state matches.

In 1970, I was his team captain in the Thomas Cup Finals held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I have confidence in Tat Wai as a badminton coach and I am sure that those who are training under him will definitely benefit from his vast experience and knowledge in the game."
