On July 13th and 14th, Marbella will host the fourth event of the Rafa Nadal Padel Tour by The Adecco Group, an innovative amateur padel circuit that combines sports, leisure, fun, and values. Specifically, the tournament will be held at the Nueva Alcántara Club (NAC), one of the top facilities in the province of Málaga.

A total of 32 teams of 6 players, divided into 4 categories (two men's and two women's), will compete to win a tournament that has already taken place in Santander and Madrid, and will soon visit Valladolid, Alicante, and Barcelona. The winners of the Málaga tournament will have the chance to secure a spot in the final event, which will be held in December at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar in Mallorca.

During the Marbella event, each team will compete in a minimum of two knockout rounds, and all participants will be able to enjoy the numerous activities scheduled throughout the event. The highlight of the weekend will be on Saturday afternoon with the Mahou Musical Evening and the numerous activations organized by Babolat on the courts of the Nueva Alcántara Club (NAC).

Maribel Nadal, Deputy General Manager of the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar, expressed her excitement: "We are very pleased with how the first events of the circuit have turned out. We are exceeding all our expectations and are now incredibly eager to get to Marbella. We firmly believe in this format that combines sports and leisure, and the team competition system is creating an amazing atmosphere. I am very much looking forward to visiting the NAC and experiencing the tournament firsthand."

Just by registering for the event, all 192 players will receive a Welcome Pack including a Nike t-shirt, a product from NDL Pro-Health, Babolat wristbands, Príncipe cookies, and sun protection from Cantabria Labs. In addition to the Babolat rackets awarded to the champions, there will be draws and gifts provided by QuirónSalud, ZEL, and Bezoya, partners of the circuit. The champions of the Marbella tournament will also win tickets to cheer on the Rafa Nadal Academy team in the Hexagon Cup.

Known for its prestige in training young tennis players since its opening in 2016, the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar has also embraced padel with the development of training programs for both youth and adults. The academy boasts state-of-the-art facilities including 10 outdoor courts and 7 indoor courts. Its fitness center, pioneering health and wellness spaces, extensive dining options, and modern residence make the Rafa Nadal Academy an ideal venue for padel enthusiasts.

Now, with the organization of the Rafa Nadal Academy Padel Tour by The Adecco Group, the goal is to promote the values, methodology, and DNA of the academy within the amateur padel community through an innovative circuit that has come to stay.
