Special Olympics Spain will celebrate this weekend the I National Meeting “More than Tennis” which will be attended by nearly a hundred athletes from different points of Spain. Young people who are part of the project “More than Tennis”, promoted by the Rafa Nadal Fundation, will demonstrate the importance of the sport as a form of personal development and social integration, while exhibiting their skills with the racquet.

With this event, sponsored by the Rafa Nadal Fundation, both organisations will conclude an ambitious program which has allowed the participants to strengthen their esteem and improve their skills to lead an independent life, being able to make personal choices and take new habits in their daily life.

“It gives us pleasure to organize an event like this, which we are convinced that the participants will demonstrate us that the tennis practice goes further the sports field”, affirm Ana Maria Parera, President of Rafa Nadal Fundation.
