Rafa Nadal Foundation

Rafa's academy/sports centre in Mallorca hosts the Masters (final) of the 8th editon of the Rafa Nadal Tour by Sandander from September 17 - 19.

The RN Tour is an annual junior tennis circuit for boys & girls under 16 years old in Spain. The Tour is divided into three age groups: 12 & Under, 14 & Under and 16 & Under. The Tour was created by Rafa's foundation in 2014. Mapfre, Spain's leading insurance company, was the title sponsor of the Tour from 2014 to 2020. Since this year, the Tour is sponsored by Banco Sandander, a Spanish multinational bank, which is also Spain's largest bank.

Tournaments were held in 4 cities in 2014, 7 cities in 2015, 6 cities in 2016 (twice in Barcelona&Alicante), 7 cities in 2017, 6 cities in 2018 & 2019 and 4 cities in 2020 (one of the initially planned tournaments, in Alicante, had to be suspended due to the pandemic). The Tour final (Masters) has been held in Rafa's hometown of Manacor.

This year, the 8th editon of the Tour was hosted in 5 cities: Barcelona (twice), Seville, Valencia, Alicante and Madrid. Winners of the 6 tournaments qualified for the Tour final (Masters) taking place at Rafa's academy/sports centre this week. [Source: the RN Tour webpage, translated via Google]

Rafa Nadal Academy in Manacor
Rafa Nadal Sports Centre in Manacor

The academy is part of the sports centre

A year ago, Rafa's sports centre established the Rafa Nadal Club within the sports centre. It's a recreational multi-sport club (fitness, tennis, padel and swimming) for all age groups. The club also organises and hosts different sporting events. The RN Club has been well received by the local people.

Yesterday (Saturday), the Rafa Nadal Club hosted 'Masterclass Zumba' on the football field of the sports centre:

Legend
Inside Tatel, the Most Celebrity-Studded LA Opening in Years

The Spanish spot opens soon in Beverly Hills with backing from Rafael Nadal, Cristiano Ronaldo, Pau Gasol, and others

The already-booming Beverly Hills food scene is about to get another big boost, as the long-awaited Tatel opens for lunch and dinner service on Tuesday, September 21.

The new restaurant — an LA extension of the original Spanish brand, with locations in Madrid and Ibiza — is nothing if not a star-studded affair, backed by everyone from Laker champion Pau Gasol to tennis legend Rafael Nadal and soccer superhero Cristiano Ronaldo. Nadal is a primary investor in the restaurant, part of the Mabel Hospitality group behind the venture along with partners Manuel Campos Guallar and Abel Matutes Prats.

Together the moneyed consortium is out to give Los Angeles even more Spanish food to fawn over, mixing traditional flavors and dishes with California ingredients and a moneyed flourish. That might mean a Spanish tortilla at one table, jamon and pan con tomate at another, and Spanish wine being poured across the primary dining room. Plus, the place is going to be a party, complete with live music every day. Expect a busy bar, lots of dancing and mingling, and heavy use of multiple patio and lounge areas across the large property at 453 N. Canon Drive in the former Nic’s space. The space itself is flush with pastel tones, touches of gold and wood, and floral accents that jump off the wall.

The incoming Tatel, one of Spain’s busiest restaurants, opens in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, September 21, keeping hours from lunch to late-night (noon to midnight) daily, with an extension to 2 a.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Sunday brunch begins at 11 a.m.

Last week, the t-shirt appeared at the European Nike.com. I had managed to snatch 2 L's before it was taken down the next day. I was afraid Nike would cancel my order but, to my surprise, I received the notification the order had been shipped. It has arrived today. Super happy :D!!! At the least, a nice curio item to my Rafa gear collection. At best, a fitting attire to cheer for the man sometime next year! Vamos!

Excellent result for the player from Gran Canaria Lucía Rodríguez who managed to finish in fifth position of the National Master of the Rafa Nadal Tour Circuit that was held at the fantastic facilities of the Rafa Nadal Tennis Academy by Movistar in Mallorca, which was attended by Rafa Nadal in the delivery of trophies.
The Rafa Nadal Tour by Santander 2021 stopped at: Barcelona (RCT Barcelona - 1899), Seville (Club Río Grande), Valldoreix-Barcelona (Club Esportiu Valldoreix - BTT), Valencia (Spanish Tennis Club), Alicante (Club Atlético Montemar ), Madrid (International Tennis Club) and culminated with this master in Mallorca in which the first seven classified in the circuit ranking of the sub-12 and sub-14 categories participated, as well as the first four of the sub-16 categories. In addition, the four winners of the 'Values Trophy' participated (two from the sub-12 category and two from the sub-14 category).
It should be noted that the Spanish Alevín, Infantil and Cadet championships, promoted by the RFET, also score for the ranking of this circuit.
The Rafa Nadal Tour by Santander scores with the coefficient of 2.5 (the highest score) in the RFET classification.
Rafa Nadal Tour by Santander is a youth tennis circuit that was born in 2014 promoted by the tennis player and benefiting the Rafa Nadal Foundation. Celebrated annually, it includes the categories under 12, under 14 and, for the first time in 2021, also under 16, both male and female
.
The Rafa Nadal Tour by Santander was created with the aim of completing the sports competition with an educational aspect. In each of the tournaments, activities and dynamics are carried out that aim to promote fundamental values in the players for their personal and sporting development. Precisely, the incorporation of 'training in values' is a fundamental pillar of the circuit and one of the aspects that has given it a unique character.
Congratulations Lucia!

I add some info.

The Tatel restaurant chain was created in 2014 in Madrid by two Spanish businessmen and Rafa within Mabel Hospitality, which is a subsidiary of Mabel Capital, the investment company owned by the two Spanish businessmen and Rafa (33%). The new Tatel Beverly Hills restaurant in Los Angeles, opened on Tuesday, is the 4th location for Tatel. Mabel Hospitality launched restaurant Tatel at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Miami at the beginning of 2017, but Hurricane Irma damaged the hotel in September of the same year and they haven't reopened the restaurant.

Currently, Mabel Hospitality co-owns and operates restaurants Tatel in Madrid, Ibiza and Los Angeles & Zela in Ibiza and London (the latter is temporarily closed due to the pandemic). The three aforementioned persons own Tatel and Zela restaurants in partnership with multiple stars: Spanish basketball stars Pau Gasol & Rudy Fernandez, Portuguese football icon Cristiano Ronaldo, Spanish motorcycle racer Joan Mir, who was crowned the 2020 MotoGP world champion, and Spanish-American singer Enrique Iglesias, who was recognized as the "Top Latin Artist of All Time" at the 2020 Billboard Latin Music Awards.
