EXPANSION: 15 tennis courts and an 8,000 m2 sports centre will be built.
THE Government has approved the proposed expansion of the Rafa Nadal Academy, which will allow for the construction of an 8,000 m2 sports centre and 15 tennis courts.
The new multi-purpose building will house 3 fast-surface courts and 7 semi-covered clay courts that will give players optimal play on days when adverse weather conditions affect tennis training. The building will also have spaces dedicated to physiotherapy, psychology, nutrition and sports medicine, offering a comprehensive service to its players. In addition, 8 outdoor clay courts will be built on the premises.
After opening its doors in 2016, the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar has already become one of the world’s leading sports centres. Located in Manacor, the Academy offers cutting-edge facilities and prides itself on its modern infrastructure.
The expansion will permit the Academy to meet the huge demand of players and fans who come to the facilities each year. In a statement released to the press, the Academy stated that the extension will create more jobs and “continue to drive the wealth of Manacor and the region by strengthening sports tourism in the Balearic Islands”.
Work will commence in the next few days and will also include the construction of a new roundabout and car park of 3,500 m2.
