Chan has two brothers and one sister (Chen Aici), who grew up in the East Block of North Point New Village on Hong Kong Island in her early years. Her father was a clerk. She graduated from Ho Tung Government Industrial Girls' High School (now renamed Ho Tung Middle School) in 1980, and then enrolled in Luo Phu Quoc Education College, and completed the physical education course in 1983. She then graduated from the Department of Physical Education of Springfield University in 1991. Chan won the women's singles championship in nine Hong Kong badminton tournaments from 1975 to 1983.

She represented Hong Kong in three Commonwealth Games across three disciplines, winning the mixed doubles gold medal in 1990. After her sporting career she became the first female headmistress of the Hong Kong jockey club apprentice Jockey's school which trains and develops future racing stars.
