Chan married Janice Lee on 6 January 2008.[1]


Chan competed in badminton at the 2004 Summer Olympics with his then partner, Chew Choon Eng. In the first round, they defeated Theodoros Velkos and George Patis of Greece, but were then defeated in the round of 16 by Zheng Bo and Sang Yang of the China. After his unsuccessful outing in the Olympic Games, Chan's regular doubles partner was changed to Koo Kien Keat.

Together, they claimed 2005 Denmark Open title.


Chan Chong Ming and Koo Kien Keat won the Malaysia Open in 2006 which was held in Kuching, Sarawak and became the new hope for Malaysia in men's doubles. However, at the XV World Championships in 2006, they conceded a walkover due to Chan's father's death.

In the Swiss Open, Chan and Koo defeated Carsten Mogensen and Mathias Boe in a thrilling 17-14, 8-15, and 17-14 final match.[2]

On the run up to the Doha Asian Games XV, Chan sustained an injury which prompted their coach, Rexy Mainaky, to split them, partnering Koo Kien Keat with Tan Boon Heong for the games instead. Chan and Koo's partnership ended when Koo won the title with his new partner.

Chan's partner was changed to Hoon Thien How who was Tan Boon Heong's ex-partner. Chan and Hoon won the Kuala Lumpur Open at the end of 2006.


Chan and Hoon Thien How won their first title in New Zealand after beating Johan Wiratama and Albertus Njoto of Hong Kong.


Chan paired again with Chew. They played in Malaysia Open, stopped at the quarter-final. In Indonesia Open they lost to highest ranked Indonesian pair at the second round. They competed at China Masters. Having a bye in the first round, they were defeated by compatriot Tan Bin Shen and Khoo Chung Chiat in the second round.

In the late 2008, Chan established a company named Pioneer Sdn Bhd with Wong Choong Hann, Choong Tan Fook, Lee Wan Wah and Chew Choon Eng. They trained young players in the two centres in Kota Damansara and Bandar Mahkota Cheras.[3]


Chan did not win a title this year. His best achievement was reaching Macau Open quarterfinal with Chew.
