The Rafa Nadal Tennis Academy opens in the summer of 2016 in Nadal's home town of Manacor. Nadal's uncle and long-time coach Toni Nadal directs operations, with former Top 100 players Marc Gorriz responsible for the day-to-day functioning. The team, including Rafa, has been designing a training method focused on what they call the "tennis of the future," which means one that assumes competition against ever faster and stronger opponents. Plans call for offering summer camps as well as weekly, monthly, and annual academy programs, with the option of pursuing academic studies at the American International School of Mallorca.
The academy itself has 26 indoor and outdoor red-clay and greenset courts as well as a fitness center, two swimming pools (one inside, one out), 7 padel courts, a mini football (soccer) field, a pro shop, health center, and residential housing. Meals are provided by the academy kitchen.
