NETS – Nadal Educational Tennis School
The NETS project has been running since 2010 and we serve around 250 children from the most vulnerable areas of southern India every year.
The NETS center (Nadal Educational Tennis School) is located in Anantapur, one of the most vulnerable areas in India. Through this center we serve boys and girls from different disadvantaged communities, with the main objective of strengthening their social cohesion and integration, regardless of their condition.
The project contemplates both the practice and training of tennis, as well as the reinforcement of academic activities in English and computer science, in addition to offering minors a daily nutritional supplement and basic health coverage

250 minors each school year
The NETS project is consolidated within the facilities of ASA, of the Vicente Ferrer Foundation, and is promoted among different educational centers in the area thanks to the clinics.
The NETS (Nadal Educational Tennis School) project is spreading around Anantapur, thanks to a new initiative that is being developed in educational centers in the area. With the tennis clinics, the NETS team manages to give access to this sport to other minors in the area and promote physical exercise and a healthy life among families.
A tennis clinic consists of technical-tactical training, physical preparation, games and activities in which students learn a new sport.
The team of professionals of the NETS project is made up of trainers and educators. In addition, each year, different students who have grown up in NETS become part of the team as volunteers and pass on their knowledge to the minors we serve, also serving as role models for them. It is a way of closing the circle and giving meaning to all the learning, since these young people become the motor of change for their community.
Wheelchair adapted tennis
Through the adapted wheelchair tennis project, the aim is to continue promoting sport as a fundamental tool to combat discrimination, promote equality and tolerance and achieve the social integration of children with reduced mobility. The continued training of these boys and girls will improve their physical, intellectual, emotional and social development.
