Ever watched Rafa Nadal at Wimbledon and thought, “I'd like to give him a game”? Well one lucky player will get the opportunity to take on the PokerStars ambassador in a special combined tennis and poker contest in Majorca in December.

From 24th September Nadal fans can compete in a free, bespoke poker tournaments to win the opportunity to take part in the Rafa Nadal Dream Day. Qualifiers will not only get to meet the 11-time Grand Slam winner but they will also receive poker tuition from his personal poker coach, spend time with him on court knocking up and the chance to compete – and possibly beat - Rafa Nadal in his new sport of poker.

“It’s always an amazing experience when I meet my fans, but I’ve never done anything like this before,” said Nadal. “I’ve spent time with them signing things and posing for photos but here they will actually be trying to beat me. This is something totally new for me.”

“I’m a very competitive person, you know, so if I’m on court, playing computer games or playing poker I just don't like losing and I always try to win. I’m still a beginner at this sport but I’ve got my poker coach so by the time I get to play against my fans I hope I'll be prepared. It’s going to be a lot of fun but I’ll be honest, I don’t want to lose!”

The Rafa Nadal Dream Day experience will be held on the 1st and 2nd December 2012 on the beautiful Spanish island of Majorca. The prize will include flights and accommodation for winners along with all meals and refreshments during the trip.
