Founder of KFBA

Ng Kam Fook, Former Malaysia's National Player


It was a twist of fate that led to Ng Kam Fook taking up badminton at the age of 10. At that time, Kam Fook was crazy about BMX bicycles and he used to tear down the streets doing all kinds of stunts. But one day, he was knocked by a car and was given 10 stitches on his leg. Kam Fook then decided that cycling was too dangerous and opted for safer hobbies, which led to him taking up badminton. It has proven to be a blessing in disguise as Kam Fook has become one of the Penang's most exciting badminton talents, complexion that he could be mistaken for a malay. Spending too much time at the beaches? "No, When i was small, i played under the hot sun" he said.

 

During his time in Hu Yew Seah Primary School in Madras Lane (Penang), he joined the school badminton team and started his journey of grapping the first trophy in his life - Champion of Under -14 boy Single. He has such a dark time Under-16 and Under-17 titles of the Penang Closed and was runner-up in the Under-15 and Under-18 categories. It was untill his stirring performance in the Perak Open where he scalped national players Davincy Saha and K. Muralidesan. After that, he was recognised by the well known national badminton coach Yang Yang and was selected into the National Player Squad of the Badminton Association of Malaysia. Along his coaching history, he was once selected as Penang's State Coach
