Gabriel Fournier
Director of Youth Development
When did you first start playing? 2018
What do you love most about playing? I have always been a very competitive person. I have played pretty much every sport. I was a big tennis player but it became very hard on my body so I decided to try pickleball and I fell in love with the sport. I like to try new strategy and I am always looking forward to a challenge. I love the friendships I made through the tournaments and the fact that I can bring my paddle with me on vacation and play everywhere.
What is your top priority in your role for PBNB? My ultimate goal is to bring the sport to "Jeux de l'Acadie". In order to do that, we need to enhance the sport through the school and promote the sport. I am confident that if we can bring the sport to "Jeux de l'Acadie", we will be able to grow the sport. I really want to make a network of contacts throughout the province in order to develop the Youth program.
