Opening of the LaLiga space at the Rafa Nadal Museum

  • This exhibition is the first event which forms part of the agreement signed last year between LaLiga and the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar
  • LaLiga joins a multitude of sportsmen and women who have already provided their memorabilia to accompany Rafa Nadal's story

 

The Rafa Nadal Museum has just opened a new exhibition dedicated to LaLiga Clubs, which will help to bring the competition even closer to the more than 50,000 visitors who flock to this iconic museum which is dedicated to Rafa Nadal and many other world-renowned sportsmen and sportswomen every year. This LaLiga exhibition features the jerseys from the LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank champions, an interactive screen where visitors can access content from all 42 LaLiga teams, stands with the official ball, competition trophies, and even a bench where fans can feel like real professional players.

 

This is the first collaboration between the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar and LaLiga, following the signing of a partnership agreement last year with the aim of sharing and enhancing each other's experiences, knowledge and strengths, as well as the reputation of both brands at a national and international level. The two organisations, which share values such as effort, tolerance, respect, integrity and commitment, among other things, will hold the official inauguration for the new exhibition in the next few days.

 

In addition to the exhibition, LaLiga Business School visited the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar facilities in June with the students from three of its Master's degree courses: the MBA, the Masters in Sports Marketing and the Masters in Global Sport Marketing, with the aim of learning about the facilities, the methodology and the academy's sporting model.

 

The Rafa Nadal Museum contains the first and only collection of trophies won by Rafa Nadal throughout his career. Visitors can immerse themselves in an emotional journey back in time to relive the highlights of an unforgettable career. In addition to learning first-hand about the achievements of one of the greatest tennis players of all time, visitors can experience a global vision of the history of contemporary sport thanks to the memorabilia and personal items donated by great athletes such as Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Roger Federer, Usain Bolt, Serena Williams, Pau Gasol, Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and now LaLiga.

 

Located in the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar (Manacor, Mallorca), this iconic museum offers a high-tech and fun environment that allows visitors to compete virtually with world-class sports stars, enjoy unique audiovisual experiences and take part in interactive games that are ideal for friends, companies and families of all ages. A wide variety of sports (tennis, football, rowing, Formula 1, cycling...) presented in a unique and exciting way in a very special museum that has become a must-see for sports fans

Daniel Rincón claims his first ITF title in Hollan

Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar player Daniel Rincón claimed his first professional title at the weekend with victory at the ITF World Tennis Tour event in Alkmaar (The Netherlands) beating Italian player Jacopo Berrettini 7-5, 6-1 in the final.

 

“To win my first professional title is really incredible and I’m very happy. It’s a title that I think I’ll remember for my whole life. I’ve been training for this for a long time and the results still weren’t coming. But reaching my first final and then winning it is great payback for the huge amount of work I’ve done with my team at the Academy”, said Dani after the tournament.

 

Dani, who made history last summer by winning the Junior US OPEN had bowed out one step from the final 4 times this year, losing in the semis at La Nucía, Palmanova, Valldoreix and Antalya. With his latest achievement, the player from Avila (who played in the qualifiers at the Mutua Madrid Open and Conde de Godó) has crossed off one of his goals for 2022.

 

“It was an incredible week with tough matches, especially in the second round, with a match that I ended up winning 7-6 in the third set past midnight. I’ve had to come back, save set points against me... And I’m very happy to have come through those situations, I think that is what makes the difference on the ITF Tour”.

 

His next goal will be to consolidate these results in the coming weeks, starting with his imminent participation in the ITF tournament in Den Haag.

Rafa Nadal and Ricky Rubio preside over the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar graduation

Manacor, 8 June 2022. After an emotional and affectionate academic ceremony, 33 students completed their school education by graduating from the Rafa Nadal Academy International School, the international American school located on the grounds of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar.

 

As is now traditional, Rafa Nadal presided over the ceremony and spoke to the families, teachers and young students, congratulating them for having finished a very important stage of their lives. During his speech, Rafa wanted to highlight the importance of fighting to overcome adversity:

 

“I know that the fashion now is immediacy and that patience is not a greatly valued virtue. When we want something, all we have to do is pick up our mobiles and make a purchase, read an article or get the information we need.

 

But today I would like to remind you that the greatest goals in life are not achieved from one day to the next. They are achieved by fighting, struggling and learning when you fall down. I’m convinced that all of you will be great professionals and good people, which is the most important thing. But I can also tell you, through experience, that along the way you will have unexpected moments and disappointments that will make you question everything. In those moments, you must rely on your family, your loved ones and the people you trust, who will remind you what your dreams and goals were so that you can dream of them again.

 

Failure is only bad if you don’t know how to pick yourself up and fight again. Sometimes you will fall down over and over again. But it’s then that you have to be humble and accept that sometimes things don’t go the way we want.

 

That’s why, in a society that wants things in the short term, I prefer to reaffirm two virtues that seem to have gone out of fashion: humility and perseverance. If you are patient and you are persistent and you have the necessary optimism not to give up, you will gain agreat deal in this life.

 

But, I’d also like to tell you that virtues are not acquired immediately, you also have to work on them every day, in your daily activity. Being punctual, training as much as required, studying every day, respecting and obeying your parents, being generous with your friends, being tolerant of the people around you... These are the small things that make the difference and those that will make you better professionals and great people for society”.

 

While at previous ceremonies the special guests have been Pau Gasol, David Ferrer, Ona Carbonell, Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova (the latter two remotely), this year the honour fell to Ricky Rubio. The NBA player also encouraged the young players to work hard, give their all and not to give up in the face of adversity.

 

Alexander Marcos Walker (Director of the Rafa Nadal School), and graduates Daniel Azrak Marbán (Valedictorian), Xavier Sabach (Salutatorian) also spoke at the ceremony.

 

The climax of the ceremony was marked by the throwing of the caps into the air and the presentation of the diplomas by Ricky Rubio, who individually congratulated each of the young students, who are now preparing for university.

 

What is the Rafa Nadal International School?

 

The Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar is also home to the Rafa Nadal International School, a mixed Anglo-American international educational school for children from 3 to 18 years of age. While the original concept of the school was designed with the goal of enabling the players at the Academy to be able to combine their tennis and academic educations, from the start, Rafa wanted to open its doors to the children of Mallorca, whether or not they played tennis, so that everyone could benefit from the facilities and the academicprogramme. This means the players at the RNA share the classrooms with other students, which encourages rewarding exchanges and educational and cultural experiences.

 

The syllabus at the RNIS has been designed with a distinctive programme that prepares all students both professionally and personally through the development of the intellectual, emotional and social aptitudes necessary for having a positive impact on their respective communities. The modern, comfortable, technological and sporty facilities at the RNIS constitute the ideal environment for learning.

 

One of the Rafa Nadal International School's biggest goals is to offer its students the opportunity to access a university in the United States or any other part of the world, with a tennis and/or academy scholarship. In the 2021/2022 academic year, 100% of the tennis-playing students that graduated and planned to go to the USA to study, were accepted and received scholarships at US universities. The rest of the graduates started their university education at centres in the UK, Spain, Germany, Holland and the UAE.

The Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar transforms to host the TAU Cerámica Mallorca Challenger

The iconic centre court at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar, where we have seen Rafa himself train so many times and which often hosts big international stops on the tennis tour, has been completely transformed to host the TAU Mallorca Challenger, which will bring together some of the biggest stars from the World Padel Tour.

 

Starting last Sunday, a total of 312 players are competing in an event that puts Mallorca on the World Padel Tour's international calendar and boasts a stellar line-up of players. In the women's competition, the hot favourites are Martita Ortega and Bea González, recent winners of the 2022 Danish Padel Open and this year's two Challenger events (TAU Cerámica Getafe Challenger and TAU Cerámica Albacete Challenger). Another top team looking to stand out at the tournament will be that of Marta Marrero and Lucía Sainz, numbers 12 and 11 in the WPT Ranking, respectively. They all started with wins in the last sixteen in Manacor. Javi Garrido and Antón Sans, Edu Alonso and Miguel Lamperti, and Víctor Ruiz and Lucas Bergamini, are the favourites in the men's competition.

 

Mallorcan culture, economy and gastronomy will be promoted during the tournament with concerts and zero-km traditional Mallorcan products.

 

Fans have already started to pack the stands at a tournament whose tickets were sold out several days before it got underway. Today it was announced that the TAU Mallorca Challenger will have the most extensive audiovisual coverage in the history of these World Padel Tour events thanks to the coverage MOVISTAR will provide throughout the weekend. Online broadcasts will start on Friday 27 with 3 women's quarter-final matches from 09:30 and will continue with 3 men's quarter-final matches from 16:30. All of them will be broadcast in Spanish on the World Padel Tour YouTube channel and the worldpadeltourtv.com OTT service. From Saturday 28, Movistar will be providing expansive coverage, offering the following matches:

 

Saturday 28: semi-finals

Women's semi-final 1: 10:00 | Deportes por M+ (channel 53) and Ellas #V (channel 56)

Men's semi-final 2: Following previous match | Deportes por M+ (channel 53)

Women's semi-final 2: 17:00h | Deportes 2 por M+ (channel 55) and Ellas #V (channel 56)

Sunday 29: finals

Women's final: 10:00 | Deportes 1 por Movistar Plus+ (channel 54) and Ellas #V (channel 56)

Men's final: Following previous match | Deportes 1 por Movistar Plus+ (channel 54)

 

 

The tournament is expected to attract 1.5 million spectators and will attract the international public thanks to the broadcasts in English, which will take place on the Saturday and Sunday on the World Padel Tour YouTube channel.

 

Rosana Morillo, the general director of the Government of the Balearic Islands, spoke of the tournament's magnitude at the presentation: "The event will put the Balearic Islands in a privileged position thanks to the huge media impact, which will favour the creation of an off-season tourist product", something that was echoed by Andreu Serra, The Council of Mallorca's Minister of Transition, Tourism and Sports and president of the Mallorca Turisme Foundation: "The staging of first-class international sports tournaments drives racket-sport tourism that favours diversity and deseasonalisation".

 

A few weeks ago, on the occasion of the Pro-Am held to promote the tournament, Rafa Nadal wished all the players the best of luck.
