    The news has been slow in getting to you.
    The SBA Hall was closed in December 2007... that's nearly a year ago.

    It's a shame what they did, considering that they haven't put it to any use yet. All that they succeeded in doing is force us to find another place to play

    Wong Shoon Keat too was forced to move his game (and store) elsewhere.
    His mobile number is +65 9630 2463

    At least once a week, usually Sunday morning, he brings a contingent of his students to Hougang Sports Hall.

    How about "How old is he?"

    I guess he should be in his late forties or early fifties!
    I think he is still a member of the SBA Management Committee.

    Yup, he should be in his early 50s now; i wonder if he still opens the badminton shop that he used to have in SBA.

    I think so. His son still has a long way to go, I'm afraid. He must first be the Singapore Champ ........ hahaha

    Like Wong Peng Soon before him, Wong Shoon Keat is a very clever player.
    It's hardly about power... what he packs is amazing control, especially at the net

    He also has that lazy 'Indonesian' hitting style... although he is hardly one.
    Must ask him one of these days how or from whom he picked that up.

    I think Wong Peng Soon is Shoon Keat's uncle.

    And it makes it all the more admirable for Shoon Keat as I understand one of his eyes is much worse than the other.

    Shoon Keat's son, Derek, must be able to beat Tommy Sugiarto, the son of ex-Indonesian singles champion, Icuk, whom his father beat during the SEA Games to become Singapore's first SEA Games champion.
