Frederic Bourdillon was born to a Jewish family in Grass, France, in March 1991. He played on the French youth team and at an early age joined INSEP, France's national sporting institute where stars such as Tony Parker, Boris Diao and Evan Fournier were also trained. He started his professional career with Antibes, won the French Cup with Chalon and also moved to Etouille Charleville and Rueil before returning to Antibes.
In September 2017, Bourdillon signed with Maccabi Haifa and later continued the season with Hapoel Eilat. In June 2018, he signed a new contract in the southern city and last season helped it reach the Israeli Final Four, where he and his teammates lost to Maccabi in the semi-finals.
Last October, Bourdillon signed with Maccabi Rishon Lezion on a two-month contract with an extension option. The team was pleased with the guard and in January granted him a one-and-a-half-year contract extension, but the season's pause due to the Corona epidemic also left him at home and away from the basketball court.
Last season with Eilat Bourdillon played 32 games, averaged 24.1 minutes per night and provided 8.7 points (57% for 2pt, 40% for 3pt) along with 2.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.1 steals. This season with Rishon he contributed 7.2 points, 2.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.5 assists in 24.9 minutes per game.
