WPT to be played at Rafa Nadal's academy in Mallorca

The WPT Mallorca Challenger will be played at Rafa Nadal's academy between 23rd May and 29th May. The World Tour made the announcement today on its website. 

The competition at Rafa Nadal's facility on the tennis icon's home island will be between 23rd May and 29th May. As it is a Challenger and not an Open or Masters on World Padel Tour, the very top-ranked players will not be able to participate. 

The top-ranked men's competitor is 13th-ranked Lucho Capra, and the top-ranked women's competitor is 9th-ranked Lucia Sainz. 

”During an exciting week, stars such as Maxi Sánchez, Lucho Capra, Miguel Yanguas, Miguel Lamperti, Jon Sanz, Javier Garrido, 'Coki' Nieto or Agustín Gómez Silingo are expected to be present in Mallorca. In the women's draw, stars such as Carolina Navarro, the Sánchez-Alayeto sisters, Lucía Sainz, Marta Ortega and Bea González could appear, guaranteeing a top-level sporting spectacle”, writes World Padel Tour in their announcement. 

They also write that the center court for the competition at the Rafa Nadal Academy will accommodate 1200 people.
