Tan Kim Her is currently coaching Low Juan Shen-Nelson Heg Wei Keat, Chua Khek Wei-Chan Ren Cong, Mohd Amzzar Zainuddin-Ng Di Hua, Tai An Khang-Woon Mun Chun, Ong Yew Sin-Darren Issac, and Yew Hong Kheng-Tan Wee Gieen. Nelson Heg Wei Keat and his former partner Teo Ee Yi won the 2011 BWF World Junior Championships, while Yew Hong Kheng and Ow Yao Han (currently in the senior team) captured the 2010 World Junior Championships.

 

Among these young shuttlers, Low Juan Shen-Nelson Heg Wei Keat was able to make it to the quarter-final of Asia Championships but lost to Shi Longfei-Chen Zhuofu of China 21-18 21-13; while another young pair Tai An Khang-Woon Mun Chun manage to advance to the quarter-final of China Masters GPG 2014 before defeated by Danny Bawa Chrisnanta-Chayut Triyachart of Singapore 21-10 21-17.

"The additional night training sessions allow me to help these young shuttlers to close the gap between them and their seniors; through these extra training, they could also adopt to the new scoring system faster," said Tan.

From Aug 1 to Nov 2, the Badminton World Federation (BWF) will test out a new scoring format – 11 points in a best-of-five games for all their level three and four tournaments like the Grand Prix Gold and satellite tournaments.

"These kids need more exposures. We have registered them for the Taiwan Open Grand Prix Gold from July 15-20. Hopefully they could produce some impressive results in Taiwan," added Kim Her.
