Train hard. Play safe

Boost your game

The Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar has designed an annual and semester program, for young players from 12 to 18 years old, based on the enriching experience acquired through years of success on the professional tour. The prestigious team of coaches, headed by Toni Nadal himself, is responsible for training young players and preparing them for the tennis of the future.

 

The aim of the programme is to maximise the potential of each player at a high-performance centre where they can combine their tennis activities with excellence in their studies. After their time at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar, players will have the option to continue their academic training by applying for scholarships at top US universities.

 

Tennis coaching and academic education are accompanied by comprehensive human training based on values such as hard work, humility, tolerance, patience, respect, integrity, discipline, organisation and commitment. All of these values are taught on the "Building a Champion" course, which also includes fundamental aspects such as physical and mental training and the importance of nutrition.

 

State-of-the-art facilities, meticulous methodology, the quality of the teaching staff and academic excellence all mean that the prestige of this annual (or semester) plan is in keeping with that of the player whose name graces the Academy.

We look forward to seeing you in Mallorca!

 

We wanted to let you know that enrolment is still open for the Annual and Semester Program, school year 2020-2021, which will begin on August 31.



We are pleased to inform you that we have incorporated a new performance-based scholarship program to facilitate access to RNA for young tennis players who have a proven high level of tennis and / or academic studies. Scholarships covering from 5% to 25% of the program fee. The tennis scholarships will be valued according to the player's tennis level as well as the potential of each applicant which will be valued by our head coaches. For the academic scholarships, the reports of each student will be valued. If you wish to receive detailed information, please do not hesitate to contact our Admissions team.

 

Over the past few months we have experienced a complicated situation due to the COVID19 pandemic that has affected the entire planet. During all this time, our main mission has been to protect and care for our students, guaranteeing their well-being within the Academy.

 

Our facilities have been conditioned to comply with the safety and hygiene protocols established by the health authorities. Thanks to the synergy with QuirónSalud (healthcare partner of the Academy), in the last few months the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar has been considered by the press and by international institutions as a success story and an example in what Safety and confidence refers to its management during the health crisis caused by COVID19.

FAQ

Can we visit your facilities?

Yes. Please visit our web www.rnsportscentre.com where you will find full details of our facilities here at the Rafa Nadal Sports Centre.

What level are the players?

We have players of varying levels and expect all players to already be training between 4-6 hours per week. The coaches assess the level of all the players at the start of the program and place them in the training groups for the week according to level and age. The coaches also decide the color ball best suited to player’s requirements. The coaches appreciate that the players may be tired from travelling and can change the group a player is in during his/her stay if they consider it necessary. The coaches always have the final decision

My child is not ranked

Not all players that come to our Annual, Weekly & Summer Camp programs are ranked. For some, tennis is their chosen sport to keep fit and active and to be able to apply the values learned through sport throughout their lives and chosen career. Not all our players want to be professional tennis players. The coaches expect the players to already be training between 4-6 hours per day. What counts most is a good attitude, a willingness to learn and to improve and a passion for tennis.

Wich is the main language?

The main language in Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar is tennis and a love of sport.

Annual program: An English language assessment forms part of the admissions procedure for this program.
