Fifteen players from the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar and the Rafa Nadal International School have had an incredible week in California visiting the USA’s most prestigious universities.


The demanding schedule, which saw them visit nine universities in just seven days, has helped them obtain a global vision of the way university tennis works and how they combine studies with sport.


The RNA players were able to see the facilities at two of the most prestigious universities in division 1, which are in the top 15 of the NCAA ranking: the University of Southern California (USC) and the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) where ATP players such as Steve Johnson, Robert Farah, Daniel Kosakowski and Michael Look, among others, studied. In addition, during the visit, they had the opportunity to see ex-Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar player and student Enrique Luque train and compete in Pepperdine. Enrique acted as their guide, showing them the facilities at the university where he has now been studying for two years. “The standard of the players in division 1 is amazing, all the players we saw compete were very good and able to play in all positions in the team. I was amazed by their serving and volleying and that they are all really good at doubles”, said Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar player Vlad Popescu while they watched the Pepperdine team compete. “It truly has been an excellent experience and I would recommend it to everyone who can come and visit these universities and see the standard of tennis of these players, which is very good” added Academy player Xavier Sabach.


As well as visiting Enrique, the group was also able to visit Andrew J Herd and Giuliano Maderner, two players who have just started university after graduating from the Rafa Nadal International School.


Thanks to I-Con Sports, this week these fifteen players were able to learn much more about the US universities and now they will have a clearer idea when it comes to choosing where they would like to study in the future. It was a unique learning experience that will last them a lifetime.
