Mr. Lucien Laverdure Lucien Laverdure was a great man of tennis; the elegant sport to which he dedicated his entire life. His memory is still ever-present in Quebec courts while gracing the company that bears his name.
His accomplishments, vision and great sense of humanity were recognized by the Panthéon des Sports du Québec, who inducted him into the Quebec Sports Hall of Fame.
Lucien Laverdure felt the passion of tennis early on in life. By 1945 he had organized over 800 exhibition matches. In 1952, due solely to his tenacity, the first Québec tennis school came into being, while in 1969 he founded the first indoor tennis club, the "Club 4 Saisons".
In the meantime, in 1965 he would publish his first book, "Mon Obsession" which sparked a statement he would often repeat: "Let us stop lamenting the demise of sport and start building".

In 1976, he asked a friend, Roland Bourassa, to take over his shop at 8852 Saint-Laurent Boulevard, due to a cancer he knew had condemned him.

Mr. Bourassa, who spent his leisure time stringing racquets, accepted and Mr. Laverdure passed way two months later. In 1985, the shop relocated to the corner of Saint-Denis and Crémazie where it underwent its final transformation to become a specialty shop for racquet sports with an ideal inventory.
