Update from Spain 2022

This year we have continued with the program directed by Sergi Bruguera and more than 70 athletes with intellectual disabilities have received tennis training and a life skills program. These trainings are carried out with a periodicity of 1.5 hours / week, starting in September and ending in July. The athletes are divided by levels of play, from players who can play one-set games, to those who start learning tennis skills. It is very gratifying to see the progress that they are getting over this time.

In addition, all players have been invited to attend different clinics/ tournaments, such as:

CLÍNIC ISDIN (TROFEO OPEN BANC SABADELL-CONDE GODO DE TENNIS DE BARCELONA) held at the Real Club de Tennis Barcelona, after two years of not being able due to Covid-19, our players had the opportunity to share a track and with established players such as: MARCEL GRANOLLERS I FELICIANO LOPEZ showing their skills with the racket on the Central court baptized as Rafael Nadal. (17th April 22).
