Rybkin & Sekerkova end season in style at 12 & Under Festival

Savva Rybkin (RUS) and Veronika Sekerkova (CZE) are the inaugural 12 & Under Festival champions in both singles and doubles. After several days of bright Mallorcan sunshine, the tournament ended as it began, on the brand‐new indoor courts of the Rafa Nadal Academy.

 

Unseeded Svit Suljic of Slovenia roared out of the blocks in the boys’ final, holding his first set point after just 23 minutes before Rybkin broke back to claim his only game of the set. Once he was on the scoreboard, the momentum gradually swung in the Russian’s favour and he edged a tight second set 6‐4 to level the match.  The eighth seed continued to enjoy the upper hand in the match tie‐break, eventually claiming the title with a drive volley on his second match point, 10‐8.

 

The girls’ final between Sekerkova and Serbia’s Luna Vujovic was not as one‐sided as the 6‐1 6‐3 score line might suggest, with the first set alone taking 50 minutes. The players were level until the seventh game of the second set, when Sekerkova scored the decisive break. The Czech player ends her season with a stunning 56‐4 win/loss record, having won a Junior Tour‐leading four Category 1 12 & Under and two Category 3 14 & Under tournaments, in addition to the Festival title.

 

Both champions returned to the court after their singles wins to add doubles titles. Rybkin teamed with Alexey Frolov to beat Mustafa Ege Sik (TUR) & Leon Sloboda (SVK) for the loss of just two games. Not to be outdone, Sekerkova partnered Sofie Hettlerova to victory over Milla Kotamaeki (FIN) & Kiira Pashkov (EST) by the exact same scoreline, 4‐2 4‐0.

 

32 boys and 32 girls from a total of 31 Tennis Europe nations were invited to compete at the event based on their results during the 2021 season. The format saw each singles draw divided into 8 round‐robin groups of four players, the winner of each of which progressed to Thursday’s quarter finals. The players received an early taste of life at a professionally run tournament, with live streaming of matches, umpires and even line judges during the latter stages of the tournament.

 

In addition to showcasing Europe’s finest 12 & Under talent, the event was held in a true festival atmosphere, with a range of off‐court educational and leisure activities taking place each day to keep the players entertained. Amongst the attractions were a visit to the Rafa Nadal Museum, an introduction to the Tennis Europe Junior School, and a Question & Answer session with legendary coach Toni Nadal.

 

Tennis Europe CEO Thomas Hammerl commented, “This has been an unforgettable event for the players and a true season‐ending highlight for the best players of the Junior Tour’s 12 & Under circuit. On behalf of Tennis Europe I’d like to thank our hosts at the Rafa Nadal Academy for their extraordinary efforts to ensure a flawless tournament. The feedback from players, coaches and parents has been extremely positive and we’re already looking forward to the second edition.”

 

Rafa Nadal sent a message to the players, saying “I’d like to congratulate all of the players that made it to compete here in Manacor. As a former player of Tennis Europe 12 & Under events myself, I remember very well how exciting it feels to play in these first international tournaments. I am happy that the new indoor courts of the academy were used for the first time for this event, and I hope the players enjoyed our facilities and all the activities. Everybody here has been impressed by the positive attitudes and good sportsmanship on court all week. I look forward to following the progress of the players in the future.”

Kinder Joy of moving Tennis Trophy International Master 2021

The Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar opens the month of November by hosting the Kinder Joy of moving Tennis Trophy International Master.


The finals of the 2020 edition, suspended due to the pandemic, and the 2021 edition will be played during this event with the 125 players aged 9 to 12, winners of the national preliminary rounds.

 

After more than 250 tournaments in 13 countries including Austria, Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Poland, Romania and Ukraine, with more than 20,000 young tennis players involved, the Kinder Joy of moving Tennis Trophy celebrates its conclusion.

 

 

The winners of the national preliminary rounds of the Kinder Joy of moving Tennis Trophy will experience four days of play, fun and socialization, giving their best on the courts, testing their fairness and integrity, and putting into practice the Fair Play code, whose respect is at the foundation of the whole tournament.


The program also includes extra sporting moments such as the visit to the MUSEUM Xperience inside the Academy and the tour of the Caves of Drach in the east coast of Mallorca. At the end of the Master, the Fair Play Trophy will be awarded to the young tennis player and coach who will most distinguish themselves for honesty and sportsmanship.

 

The claim of this edition was "More than a trophy": the absence of umpires, the attention to fair play, the focus on friendship and relationship, the participation of parents as active players and the many opportunities for fun, on and off the tennis court, are the unique features that makes the Kinder Joy of moving Tennis Trophy much more than a sporting event.

 

The tournament was invented in Italy in 2006 by the former tennis player Rita Grande in collaboration with Kinder Joy of moving: it has grown over the years helping to promote an active lifestyle among younger generations also at an international level. It represents one of the main initiatives supported by Kinder Joy of moving, because it fully reflects its mission and philosophy, through the promotion of movement as personal and relational growth.
