Career History
Founder
2007 - Current

The Rafa Nadal Foundation was created in November 2007. It arose from the desire of the tennis pro and his family to help socially discriminated children and teenagers who run the risk of exclusion by society. Its contribution permits the offer of a better lifestyle to young persons all over the world, to whom sport opens a new door towards hope. In February 2008 we celebrated the official presentation of the Foundation in Manacor, the birthplace of Rafa Nadal, our Founding Patron and, since then, we have worked solidly towards our clearly defined targets and values.
