Leylani Stefanov and Martin Pavlov, winners of the FPI Bowl Tournament for children under 11 years of age, visited Mallorca and came home with new experience gained, renewed motivation and a dream come true! Both children took part in the TEN-PRO Global Junior Tour contest in Rafael Nadal’s Academy in Mallorca. Martin ranked 10th among the boys, and Leylani 16th among girls from all over the world, who also won local tournaments to come to the island.
During the contest, both Bulgarians had a free play with Nadal himself and his uncle Tony. They also met with other successful tennis stars.
Martin and Leylani’s dream to meet Nadal came true due to their efforts and the support of FPI Hotels & Resorts. The company funded their travel to Mallorca and organized at least four games and the meeting with Rafael Nadal for them.
The next FPI Bowl Tournament for children under 11 years of age will be held in Santa Marina Tennis Center in September 2019. The prizes planned for the best boy and girl in the contest also aim at inspiring our young tennis talents.
Tennis Center "Santa Marina" is part of Santa Marina Holiday Village, located in the town of Sozopol, and has 8 outdoor tennis courts with hard surface (hard court) and night lighting. All courts offer panoramic sea views and are located next to the newly built park with a kid’s playground and an amphitheater. The convenient location of the tennis center makes it a leading destination for organizing various tennis events - regional, national, as well as international tournaments from the ITF chain.
