Rafa Nadal Foundation


The Rafa Nadal Foundation was launched in 2008 to fulfil the wishes of the tennis star and his family, who wanted to help socially-disadvantaged youngsters who run the risk of exclusion by society. Their contribution give the chance to offer a better life to people all over the world; one in which sport opens the doors to a better future.


The mission of the Rafa Nadal Foundation is to offer educational programs to the deprived, with a common denominator: sport. We in the Foundation are convinced that sport is a basic tool for personal and social integration and therefore, it becomes the focal point upon which we base all our actions.

By means of two of the key elements in the life of Rafael Nadal, i.e. education and sport, we are able to foster some of the values we consider of greatest importance for the personal growth of each one of our beneficiaries: exertion, respect, friendship, equality and confidence.


At the RafaNadal Foundation, we work to promote a healthy personal development and complete social integration for the most socially disadvantaged youngsters, in order to improve their future prospects. At the same time, we want to foster the intrinsic positive values and attitudes of sport in children and young people.
