Mallorca is famous for three things: it's a lovely Mediterranean climate, stunning architecture, and one of the best tennis players on Earth - Rafael Nadal. The renowned tennis legend was born in the charming city of Manacor, where he later decided to open his academy where lovers of the white sport can learn new techniques from the greatest coaches in the world. Open for tennis aficionados of all ages, the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar is a great way to spend the day, especially for families traveling with children.
The center has an International School where the greatest young talents from all over the world learn the craft from the best instructors while still pursuing a quality education.
The 40.000m2 sports center is open to the public. Come play at one of 19 hard fields, 7 clay courts, and indoor facilities where you can practice your forehand. Forgot to pack your equipment? Don't worry - you can buy a racquet, balls, or anything else in the high-end sports boutique.
There's a large gym with cutting edge machines, large Olympic indoor and outdoor pools, as well as a section devoted to physical therapy and injury recovery.
Spend time relaxing in the SPA center, or grab a healthy bite in the sports cafe. If you're a big fan of Rafa's, you'll love the museum where all his trophies are displayed in one place.
If you've got a budding Wimbledon winner in the family, you can ask about enrolling them in the summer camp where they would be able to learn from the greatest virtuosos in the game. Adults can take classes as well and surprise their friends with their improved backspins once they're back from their lovely Mallorcan vacation.
The Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar also hosts different sorts of events - you can rent the conference room, organize a business lunch, or even a photoshoot. With so many activities to choose from, a day or two in the Academy is fun for the entire family, and afterward, you can have a swim in the crystal clear waters of Cala Anguilla or visit the vineyards of Vins Miquel Gelabert.
