Eugenie Bouchard: On the Road to Being a Champion from an Early Age

Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard may have lost in the finals at the world-famous Wimbledon tennis tournament in England, but she’s still inspiring young Canadians to take up the sport, and it’s expected that her victory will result in millions of dollars in endorsement deals.

As the top tennis camp in North York, Bayview Village Tennis Camp prides itself on producing future Eugenie Bouchards. We provide comprehensive training in the sport from a champion: our head tennis coach, Peter Nielsen, is a National Senior Champion and has also coached national and provincial teams to victory.

Bouchard first started playing tennis when she was five years old and at the age of 12, she moved to Florida to be coached by Nick Saviano, returning to Montreal at 15 for further training. Our tennis camp in North York accepts students of all ages, should you want to start your child at a young age or your teenager was inspired by Bouchard’s success at Wimbledon and wants to take up the sport. Regardless of their age, we will train them to be the best.

From a young age, Bouchard was winning tennis tournaments. She captured International Tennis Federation (ITF) singles and doubles titles in 2008 and won her first professional title at the 2011 Burnie International. She went on to win her second ITF title that same year.

From there, Bouchard has won tournaments all over the world, from Australia to Canada, and captured titles and advanced to the top ranks with victories over some of the top international tennis stars, and all this before she turned 20! We believe that with the proper training, children can acquire the skills they need to be champions. That’s why in addition to Peter Nielsen, we also employ only the best tennis instructors.

In 2012, Bouchard won the junior singles title at Wimbledon, paving the way for her success at the tournament two years later. That year, she went on to victories at ITF tournaments in Ontario and Quebec and at Canada’s famous Rogers Cup.

Now, in 2014, in addition to her victories at Wimbledon, Bouchard also took home her first Women’s Tennis Association title. She also shattered the image of the humble Canadian athlete; she wants to be a top tennis star and doesn’t hide it, displaying a confident and assured public image.

When you register your child at our tennis camp in North York, we will coach them to be the best. It’s little wonder our summer camps fill up so quickly! Call Bayview Village Tennis Camp and start your aspiring Eugenie Bouchard on the road to victory!
