One West Vancouver ace is shaping up to be one of Canada’s rising youth tennis stars.

Jack Davison, 16, just swept Tennis BC’s U18 Outdoor Junior Provincial Championships in Burnaby, July 24 to 27, going undefeated to take both the singles and doubles titles.

In singles, he overtook Coquitlam’s Owen Nguyen 4-6, 7-5, 6-4. Nguyen was Canada’s top male U14 player in 2021.

In doubles, Davison and Nguyen were teammates, defeating Mustafa Said and Gelan Su 7-5, 7-6. The pair has had success in the past, winning boys’ doubles at the U18 Indoor Junior Provincial Championships in March and the Hollyburn Country Club Winter Open in February in the men’s doubles 8.0+ category.

On his own, Davison claimed the 15U singles title at the 2022 Fall Universal Tennis Junior Nationals in San Diego last December.

Davison is going into his Grade 12 year at Rockridge Secondary this fall and trains with Atton Burrell at Hollyburn Country Club, as well as Roberto Brogin at the North Shore Winter Club.
