    Launched in February 2002 by former Prime Minister’s wife, Yang Amat Berbahagia Tun Dr Siti Hasmah, the first MBA badminton centre was situated in Taman Megah. With 16 indoor courts, MBA Taman Megah was recognized as the largest privately-owned badminton centre in the state.

    In September 2004, MBA opened the Bandar Puteri, Puchong centre with 32 indoor courts, which was awarded the Biggest Badminton Centre in Malaysia by the Malaysia Book of Records. In 2015, MBA Puchong moved from Bandar Puteri to Bukit Puchong. In 2016, MBA launched its first badminton centre outside of Klang Valley, MBA Port Dickson, a container-concept centre equipped with modern technology to ensure smooth and convenient access for frequent customers and members.

    Today, MBA is a one-stop centre for all badminton needs from offering professional services from court rentals and pro-shops to a full-fledge badminton academy, training players from Malaysia and around the world. In addition to that, MBA also hosts local and international tournaments, badminton exchange programmes with other countries and corporate events.


“Our aim is to equip them with skills of excellence in badminton and instill positive values in them; with the hopes that with the training and lessons learnt would empower these children to set out for a brighter future. ” - KC Lee at the launch of Hope for Change in 2011

Past Corporate Events

corporate-montage

As Malaysians become more aware on the importance of a healthy lifestyle, we see corporations not only encouraging this practice, but also proactively providing platforms for employees via sports clubs and team-building sessions to promote the culture of a healthy living. Among the organisations that we’ve had the pleasure of assisting include British American Tobacco, HSBC, Hewlett Packard, Sierra Ovation, UPECA Aerotech, and Scientex. We’re also always on the lookout to help schools raise awareness of badminton playing amongst employees, and encourage them to get in touch with MBA for a fun experience.
