  • Aldar Academies

Abu Dhabi, 5th March, 2014 – Former women’s world number1 tennis player Monica Seles inspired over 1,000 Aldar Academies students at a health and wellbeing event at Zayed Sports City tennis stadium. 

In partnership with Mubadala, the Abu Dhabi based investment and development company, students from six Aldar Academies schools participated in a day of health and fitness activities and the Aldar Academies Tennis Championships. As well as the friendly inter-school competition, activities included exercises with the former world number one champion and a variety of fun activities designed to introduce students to tennis and improve their skills.

Seles was in Abu Dhabi for the Inspirational Women of Fitness event, which was sponsored by Mubadala to coincide with International Women’s Day on March 8th 2014. Aldar Academies’ philosophy consistently emphasises the importance of a healthy lifestyle and being physically fit. Seles engaged students in a talk where she spoke about the importance of prioritising healthy lifestyles, her experience as a professional tennis player and the hardships that influenced her life decisions. 

Nilay Ozral, Chief Executive Officer of Aldar Academies commented: “At Aldar Academies, we place great emphasis on sports and encouraging our students to embrace the opportunities they afford. We are thrilled that our partnership with Mubadala enables them to meet one of the world’s greatest sportswomen. Monica Seles is a role model for all, not only for her prowess as a tennis champion but also as someone who has faced up to, and conquered, great adversity.”

Nadine Saleh, Head of Social Development and Partnerships at Mubadala said “Mubadala is committed to encouraging young people across the nation to understand the importance of wellbeing and keeping fit and active. We are proud to have developed a unique program in partnership with Aldar Academies that allows us to leverage visits by inspiring sporting personalities to motivate students to lead healthy lifestyles.”
