Rafael Nadal announced on Monday that he will open a tennis academy in his hometown of Manacor, Mallorca. The Spanish star christened the construction of the new project by laying a time capsule under the foundation.
With a summer 2016, completion date, the sports complex will reportedly have 18 tennis courts, football fields, swimming pools, a Rafa museum, a school and more. All for kids aged 8 to 17.
“Tennis has given me a lot,” Nadal said. “So that’s my way to give something back to the kids and the new generation.”
