Rafael Nadal announced via Twitter today the creation of the Rafa Nadal Tour by MAPFRE, in conjunction with the Rafa Nadal Foundation and several other sponsors, a junior tennis circuit tour for boys and girls in the under 13 and under 15 categories. Its mission is to develop values that promote personal and athletic development, education and sportsmanship for its participants.
The tour will consist of 3 stages, beginning in Seville, progressing to Barcelona, Madrid, and a Masters Final in Rafa’s home turf of Mallorca. Proceeds will benefit the Foundation, which helps children and adolescents at the risk of exclusion via sports and educational programs.The first leg of the circuit is slated to start in Seville in March. Subsequent events will be held up until the final in late September in Mallorca. The registration fee is a nominal €25 per player for each stage.
The tour seems like an excellent initiative that will promote tennis while helping youngsters, and should serve as an example to others to adapt in areas where tennis is inaccessible or unpopular. Vamos, Rafa Nadal Tour, we wish you success!
