Rafael Nadal visits his Academy's new facilities
In May 2016, Rafael Nadal opened his Rafa Nadal Academy at home in Manacor, passing his vision onto the upcoming stars at the state of the art facility.
The Academy offers the best conditions for the future tennis stars, helping them to improve the various elements with highly skilled and trained coaches. Also, the Academy is hosting various junior and professional events, giving a chance to its students to compete and gain experience.
