MADRID - The Rafa Nadal Academy is to open a new facility in Hong Kong that offers "high-quality tennis training", the organization confirmed on Tuesday.

The Hong Kong facility will be the third Rafael Nadal tennis center, following similar facilities in Costa Mujeres in Mexico and on the Halkidiki peninsula in Greece.

Nadal also runs an academy on the Spanish island of Mallorca, where he is from.

We are very excited about this new international project in Hong Kong.

In a press release, the organization said that the decision to open a center in Hong Kong was reached with the help of the Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy.

"We are very excited about this new international project in Hong Kong. Since the opening of the academy in Mallorca five years ago, we have always found it very interesting to be able to expand our methodology to more countries in order to reach as many people as possible," said Nadal.
