Rafa Nadal Tour Australia
The Rafa Nadal Tour is a part of the 2023 Australian Junior Tour with eight events held across all states & territories.
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 event 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.
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.
