In 1991, he opens his own academy at Eze-sur-Mer on an apparently classical scheme: 5 courts, four of which are lit up, 2 synthetic lawn ones, a team of five coaches holders of state degrees. The club counts 400 members today. The dynamic training centre is among the most impressive on the Coast, including 15 junior teams and 7 for adults at the high level of competition that reaches pre-national level, which means the highest region rank.
What is most characteristic in this tennis-school is its frame of mind. Michel has a passion for his job and for life in general. When you enter his institute, you soon feel a friendly atmosphere made of serenity and generosity. When you observe a lesson either for children or for adults, given by any of the coaches, and especially by any of the coaches, and especially by Michel, you are stricken by their involvement and their empathy. On Wednesdays and Saturdays children, starting from three-year-old ones, have their collective lessons. Generally they don’t want to quit. This man has a secret! The mood is so convivial that your teen-agers will never want to leave will the club!
During the school holidays, your kids rush to the week training courses. The day classes start at 9 a.m, lunch is served under big magnolia trees, the kids have a teatime break and educational games. In the late afternoon permission is given to turn the court into a football stadium…You won’t be able to get your young ones back, before 5 p.m., exhausted but thrilled. The week training courses always end with a competition. On Friday evenings, Cups are awarded to the champions of each group, a somehow solemn and moving moment for all.
Since last September, Michel Borfiga has taken over the tennis club at La Turbie, a school that counts nearly a hundred members. Michel is proud and enthusiastic about the challenging project to give a boost to a club that has a rich potentiality. He intends to give his Summer Trainaing Courses there and our dear little ones are too impatient for words. Indeed, at La Turbie the local swimming pool is next to the tennis court and the children are enthralled.
« Be serious but don't take yourself seriously » is Michel Borfiga's motto and that is exactly what he does as he manages his clubs. Michel is a man in touch with all the members he coaches with talent. So we all wish him good luck !
