Athena renewed the agreement with the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar to continue with the developmental in the United States by offering tennis camps in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Jersey. Athena partners with the leader in tennis programming to bring the Rafa Nadal methodology to both junior players and adults at the state-of the-art facilities of the Roxbury Latin School, Boston, The Hotchkiss School, The Loomis Chaffee School, and Sacred Heart, Connecticut, The Lawrenceville School, Princeton and St. George’s School, Newport.

The camps are led by official Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar coaches and offer exclusive tennis coaching to boys and girls ages 9 to 18 using the same methodology and training that is used at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar in Mallorca, Spain. Adults also have an opportunity to receive coaching in small groups. With the popularity of tennis on the rise and Rafa Nadal’s recent record breaking grand slam victory creating headlines, the summer is the perfect time for aspiring young players to improve their game.

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Athena and support the growth of American tennis. By supporting the development of players on and off the court we hope to enhance the mental, physical and technical aspects of their game.” Said Tomas Prieto, Head Coach of the Rafa Nadal Academy Camps.

“The Rafa Nadal Academy Camps are always well received because we provide training not usually available here in the U.S. The camp is a great taste of high performance tennis and many of our players decide to go to the academy in Mallorca as a result of their positive experience.” said Marta Ramos, President of Athena. “We are excited to bring this dynamic camp to young players across the Northeast and the new markets of Hartford and Princeton.”

Space on this summer’s camps is limited and available on a first come first served basis. For more information please visit: https://athena.rafanadalacademycamps.com/
