Legendary coach Toni Nadal joined the 12 & Under Festival yesterday, greeting the players and posing for pictures at the Opening Ceremony and taking part in a special Question and Answer session with Tennis Europe CEO Thomas Hammerl.
He answered questions from players and coaches on a range of topics including:
- The importance of a good attitude and education
- Rafa’s unconventional pathway to professional tennis
- Footwork, and the importance of learning to play on clay
- Discipline and work ethic
The off-court activities at the Festival continue this afternoon with an introduction to the Tennis Europe Junior School, plus fun and games at the Rafa Nadal Museum.
