Telefónica develops the metaverse of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar

Telefónica today presented the metaverse of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar, a 3D virtual space where users can get to know one of the world’s leading sports centers without having to physically move.

 

 

Through Rafa Nadal’s 3D virtual avatar, visitors can get to know the facilities of the sports center located in Manacor (Mallorca) and tour the academy by themselves. It also has a collaborative room where meetings or encounters can be held through the virtual avatars of the academy. In addition, the metaverse includes a playful part. On the one hand, users will be able to unlock achievements as they progress, and if they manage to complete all the missions they are given, they will be able to obtain interesting prizes through sweepstakes. On the other hand, there are several mini-games available throughout the visit.

 

Telefónica has been responsible for developing the metaverse of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar. With the application of this technology, those responsible for the project seek to bring the new facilities and methodology of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar to the younger audience through an innovative, fun and gamified experience.

 

 

Rafa Nadal states: “Honestly, I am very surprised by how well the Academy has turned out in the virtual world. I think it is a very positive project that will allow anyone to get to know our facilities and programs from anywhere in the world in a fun and entertaining way. In addition, I believe that we will reach a young audience that identifies with new technologies. Thanks to Telefónica and the work of the entire team that has been involved, we have done something new and that everyone will like”.

 

Chema Alonso, Chief Digital Officer at Telefónica, explains: “With this new project, Telefónica demonstrates its strong commitment to continue exploring the technological possibilities offered by Web3 and the metaverse. We thank the entire team that makes up the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar that, together with Telefónica, they open their doors in the metaverse so that all interested users can get to know one of the most recognized sports centers in the world through an immersive and enjoyable experience”.

 

Telefónica, being faithful to its pioneering and innovative spirit, wanted to present the metaverse of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar with a virtual press conference in 3D. The journalists who attended were able to choose their own 3D avatar, be in a collaborative room with other colleagues located anywhere in the world, follow the interventions and ask questions as if they were physically in Manacor (Mallorca) where the presentation took place.

Hong Kong to be the home of the world’s third Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre

Since its beginnings in 2016, the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar’s international outlook has led it to take its training methodology to various corners of the planet. The expansion to Kuwait with its first academy outside of Spain was a key milestone in the development and implementation of sports programmes outside of Mallorca, but this internationalisation has also been implemented in the form of another model that has helped grow the sport among children and adults with a different kind of sports centre.

 

Therefore, and in response to the demand in the sports tourism sector, the “Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre” (RNTC) was conceived as a new line of sports centres to complement the Rafa Nadal Academies in Mallorca and Kuwait. These tennis complexes are located within high-end holiday resorts at internationally popular destinations. After the opening of the first Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre in the Mexican Caribbean (Costa Mujeres), and the RNTC on the Halkidiki peninsula (one of the biggest tourist destinations in Greece), today the upcoming inauguration of the next RNTC, in Hong Kong, was officially announced.

 

This new tennis centre is born of the synergy achieved with the Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy (HKGTA), a prestigious sports centre, the tennis aspect of which will be implemented with seal of the Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre and will run tennis programmes designed with the RNA methodology and with coaches from Mallorca who have moved to the Asian country.

 

Rafa Nadal himself is very excited about the inauguration of the project, which will take place in less than three months: “We’re very excited about this new international project in Hong Kong. Since the academy opened in Mallorca 5 years ago, we have always been interested in expanding our methodology to other countries in order to reach as many people as possible. To us, having trusted members is essential and therefore I would like to thank the HKGTA for their great confidence in the project. The facilities are spectacular and we’ll have great coaches at the Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre. I’m sure it will be a success and that, bit by bit, we’ll be able to continue our international expansion”.

 

The goal of the Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre in Hong Kong will be to offer high-quality tennis coaching that helps promote the sport in the country thanks to the various personalised programmes designed to suit the profiles of the players. These programmes have been developed as part of an exclusive training system, based on the successful experience acquired by Rafa Nadal and his coaching staff over almost 20 years on the professional tour.

 

The sports seed planted in Mallorca has now germinated in Kuwait, Mexico, Greece and Hong Kong. The goal is to perpetuate the international expansion so that the tennis and human spirit of Rafa Nadal can permeate more countries in the years to come

Llevant en Marxa and the Rafa Nadal Foundation join forces to help Ukraine

Ukraine is going through very difficult times, the whole country being in a devastating situation. For this reason, the NGO Llevant en Marxa and the Rafa Nadal Foundation have joined forces to collect food for the families who need it most.

 

The aim is to collect the food most in demand by families, such as tinned chickpeas, lentils, boiled beans and tomato. They also need condensed and powdered milk and baby food in hermetically sealed glass jars. Children are particularly vulnerable and therefore one of the groups that suffer most from this situation of need.

 

The collection will take place from 16 to 28 March, when the convoy will leave Mallorca for Catalonia by boat. From there, with the help of staff from Manacor, it will travel by lorry to the Ukrainian border with Slovakia where it will be stored in a warehouse and delivered personally to Ukrainian families by a team of Ukrainian staff. At all times we will be supervising the distribution to ensure all the food reaches those it is intended for.  

 

In collaboration with the Rafa Nadal Foundation and the NGO Llevant en Marxa, and with the aim of supporting this important cause, two collection points have been set up and will be open until the 28th of March:

-          Rafa Nadal Club Reception

-          Reception of the Rafa Nadal International School / Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar

 

In addition, the full proceeds from the purchase of tickets to the Rafa Nadal Museum in the second half of the month will go towards the purchase of food for this cause.

 

The Rafa Nadal Foundation has been working for ten years with the firm conviction that sport and education are tools for change with which we can achieve a better world. If you would like to know more about a major part of this great family, you can do so through their website: www.fundacionrafanadal.org or by subscribing to their newsletter.

 

 Thank you all very much for your generosity!
