While Roger Federer regained the world No. 1 ranking in Rotterdam, Rafael Nadal was playing the grass-court game in Manacor.

The Rafa Nadal Sports Centre hosted the inaugural Rafa Nadal Golf Challenge by Sotheby’s International Realty tournament last weekend.

The event featured a three-day golf competition on three courses—Son Servera, Pula and Son Gual—and several social events.

Nadal's team won the competition, followed by Philip With’s, President and CEO of Sotheby's International Realty Affiliates LLC, the main sponsor of the tournament; and the Czech Republic team.

Around 80 attendees, including players and companions, stayed at the Rafa Nadal Sports Centre facilities from Thursday to Sunday where two out of the three dinners were held for the Tournament. The first dinner was held on Thursday, February 15 to welcome all the participants and conduct the drawing for the competition.

On Saturday night, 100 guests gathered in the trophy room of the Rafa Nadal Museum Xperience enjoying a special cocktail and a seated menu in one of the most unique halls of the museum.

Guests were surrounded by Nadal's 16 Grand Slam trophies as well as donations from international athletes that make up the collection of the Manacor museum.

"We are having great weather conditions and I am very enthusiastic for future editions of this golf tournament," Nadal said during his speech on Saturday night.

All this activity took place after the King of Clay hung out with Titanic star and tennis fan Leonardo Di Caprio as an ambassador for PostcodeLoterij.
