Eleven years old, the young nugget of BCPF is educated in 6e, at the college Le Bocage in Dinard which is labeled Pôle Espoirs. It was while accompanying his dad that young Lenny got caught up in the game of steering wheel, a sport that combines speed, power and technique.

His qualities and faults, it is his father who accompanies him regularly, who speaks about them the best:

“Lenny reads his opponents’ play very well, he knows how to anticipate. He also has a creative game that destabilizes the opponent and his net play is his strength. On the other hand, he lacks the strength on the backhand that he works a lot”.

His favorite hobby is playing on the console. “Remnants of confinement! »Says the dad, who is attentive to his son’s school results, with a smile:

“At this age, it is the most important. Lenny is a serious pupil who has facilities and good faculties of assimilating the lessons”.

Mathematics has his preference.

OJ and Top 12

When we talk to him about goals, the young Fougerais has shining eyes:

“Win the French championship in November in Mulhouse! “

The tournaments abroad to face the best are also an important motivation: the Netherlands (already won 2 years ago), the Belgium, l’Spain

Closer, the international tournament of Bourges (end of January) and the interregional of Beaucouzé (Maine-et-Loire) are in the sights of the young badiste. Time-consuming and financially heavy travel, at the expense of the family with help from the club and the League. For a better distribution of costs, parents organize themselves into a network.

One might think that Lenny is very much in demand by clubs with big means: for the moment, the dad and his son refuse to do so, preferring “to remain faithful to the roots of the training club”.

Whoever, for 4 years has been the French n ° 1 in his category (youngest), if he likes the individual side of his sport, also appreciates the double. As a double man, he discovered links with Aodrenn Houtin (Guichen Bourg-des-Comptes) with whom he plays regularly. In mixed, the chance of a competition in Mulhouse, associated it with Anissa Vogt who, also, is n ° 1 in France. An explosive duo!

The long-term objectives of the badiste Fougerais are twofold: to take part in the example of Tom Gicquel and Lénaïg Morin in the Olympic Games and to play in the Top 12, the highest French level, with the club of Fos / Mer, club of the Popov brothers , the badminton M’Bappé!
