Tour dates: Nine State Premier events from April 2022 to January 2023, for juniors in the 12/under and 14/under age groups.
The Rafa Nadal Tour is a junior tennis circuit launched in Spain in 2014. Running in Australia since 2019, it has a strong focus on sport and education combining the tournament aspect with dynamic and fun educational activities (classroom and physical). The Rafa Nadal Academy aims to share with the players their rationale and to establish strong fundamental values, which involves teaching and working towards the four main pillars of the tour, which have been updated for 2022/3.
HUMILITY: Humility is the capacity to live your life with freedom from pride or arrogance, the quality or state of being humble.
RESILIENCE: Resilience is the ability to recover quickly from difficulties; to show toughness in adversity
SPORTSMANSHIP: The appropriate and correct behaviour during the practice of any sport, as well as the acceptance of adverse situations willingly.
COMMITMENT: The capacity that players have to acknowledge, get involved and accomplish something that has been previously agreed to.
