CALENDAR & RAFA'S TEDDY
And for all those who want to have a special 2021 while also supporting a great cause… The official Rafa Nadal Foundation calendar is now available! The calendar is now in the website’s charity section, where fans can also find umbrellas, notebooks, crayons and… the famous Rafa teddy!
Various ATP Tour legends and active players such as Marat Safin, Roberto Bautista Agut, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Lorenzo Sonego and Younes El Aynaoui too the chance during their recent stay at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar to enjoy a unique experience with a visit to the Rafa Nadal Museum.
Auger-Aliassime and Sonego were the first to travel back through the best moments of the career of a 20-time Grand Slam winner. From when his journey began at Roland Garros in 2005 to equalling the record for major titles he now shares with Roger Federer, also in Paris in October 2020.
But the Canadian and the Italian were not the only ones keen to see the extraordinary collection with their own eyes. Like his peers on tour, Bautista not only visited the facility in Manacor to fine-tune his game for the 2021 season, he also tested his skills on the museum's simulators in the experience room.
Other legendary ATP Tour players took a look back at their great battles with the Balearic Islander two decades ago. El Aynaoui endured two duels against Nadal in Bastad and at the US Open in 2003, when he was just 17 years of age. For his part, Safin, winner of two Grand Slam titles, faced the Spaniard in another two matches in Canada in 2007 and Beijing in 2009.
The Ecuadorian Nicolas Lapentti, who crossed paths with Rafa three times in his career, made the most of his visit to the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar by enjoying the museum and its activities in the company of his son.
Likewise, all of these ATP stars were able to see the exhibition of a range of important memorabilia from more of history's greatest athletes.
An exciting new event will make its debut on the Tennis Europe Junior Tour calendar in 2021, when the inaugural 12 & Under Festival is held at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar.
Designed to celebrate and reward the best-performing players of the Tennis Europe Junior Tour’s youngest age category, the 12 & Under Festival will be an invitational event for national squads of European boys and girls.
The 32-player draws will consist of champions from Category 1 tournaments throughout the season and players will also pair up for a doubles competition. The unique format of the singles event will see the winners of eight round robin groups advance to the quarterfinals, ensuring optimal match play for all participants.
The event will take place from 15th – 20th November on the hard courts of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar. Situated in the Mallorcan home town of the 20-time Grand Slam champion and former Tennis Europe Junior Masters winner, the Academy has hosted many high-calibre international events, including ATP Challenger and ITF World Tennis Tour tournaments.
Tennis Europe President Ivo Kaderka said, “This event is incredibly special for us, and is sure to be a highlight of the season for some of our most promising 12 & Under players. I would like to thank the Spanish Tennis Federation and the Rafa Nadal Academy for their cooperation, and we look forward to working together to provide these young talents with a unique tournament experience at an inspirational venue.”
Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar Director Toni Nadal spoke of his excitement at hosting this tournament in Manacor. “At the Academy we’re really thrilled to host this event and to be able to enjoy the talent of the best players in the world in the Under-12 category. We are sure that this synergy with Tennis Europe will be a huge success and that this tournament will be world class. In addition, these players will be able to enjoy a unique experience thanks to the new facilities we’ll be opening at the Academy in 2021, including new indoor and outdoor courts and a medical-services, physiotherapy, nutrition and fitness building”.

The facilities of the Academy have been adapted to comply with the safety and hygiene protocols established by health authorities. Thanks to synergy with QuirónSalud (healthcare partner of the Academy), during the last few months, the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar has been considered a success story by the press and international institutions, and an example of safety and trust thanks to its management during the health crisis caused by COVID-19.
Below are some of the safety measures that will be implemented to prevent COVID-19 contagion during the coming summer months:
To guarantee a safe environment, all players and guests of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar must comply with the health measures approved by the Government of the Balearic Islands, which include restrictions on the entry of passengers to Mallorca.
Additionally, the children enrolled in any of our Junior Programs (Boarding and No Boarding) will undergo an Antigen Test before the start of the program (Monday) in order to guarantee a safe coexistence in the Academy. The Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar will cover the entire cost of these tests.
