With Mallorca entering Phase I of the de-escalation process as per government guidelines, tennis has resumed at the Rafa Nadal Academy as well. The academy posted a video on their Twitter account to announce that they were back to playing tennis while ensuring that the security protocols and hygiene standards would be met.
On Friday, Toni Nadal, who is now the Director of the Rafa Nadal academy, was also seen back on the courts with a mask covering his face. Rafa Nadal Tennis Academy by Movistar is based in the 19-time Grand Slam champion, Rafa Nadal's hometown Manacor, Spain.
It was established in 2016 and Nadal's rival Roger Federer was the guest of honor in the inauguration event. While the tennis has been able to resume in Mallorca, several other parts of Spain are still in Phase 0 and tennis players in those regions have not been able to resume training in those regions.
Now that Mallorca has entered Phase 1 of deescalation, we are back to playing tennis! We have activated the protocols of security and hygiene to guarantee the health and well-being of our players.
You focus on playing tennis...
Back on court! 💪🏼
