Looi Badminton Academy (fondly known as LooiBA) was established in 2006. The idea of setting up a badminton academy was first mooted by a diehard badminton enthusiast, Mr. Wong Wei Choy (aka Looi Sok or Uncle Looi) who later gathered a group of current and former national player to realize his noble dream. Thus, the academy was named after Uncle Looi.
Among the badminton stars who gave their utmost support are our National No. 1 - Lee Chong Wei and National Doubles Specialist - Choong Tan Fook who was also LooiBA's Badminton Ambassador cum Consultant and also a fleet of current and former national players who are members of the coaching panel.
