Rafa Nadal Tennis Academy Proves a Big Smash with Students

Tennis players from Brentwood Preparatory and Senior Schools were treated to a fantastic one-off training session from the Rafa Nadal Academy team, facilitated by tour company ‘Travel Places’.

The session focused on different techniques for attacking and defending from the back of the court, encouraging students not only to strengthen their baseline shots but also approach the net for volleys, replicating the game style of Rafael Nadal, world number one.

Head of Tennis, Mrs Simpson-Crick, was delighted to have been approached by ‘Travel Places’ for this amazing opportunity, being aware of the Mallorcan academy and its prestige. Students aged 10-18 thoroughly enjoyed the session, which finished with an exciting waves version of ‘King/Queen of the Courts’. 

The Rafa Nadal Academy runs exciting junior and adult programmes and camps, which the School will be looking to explore in the future.
