The RM Tennis association aims to provide coaching, competition and support to Royal Marines that have an active interest in playing and improving their tennis skills. We welcome all abilities at our training sessions and those that are of an LTA rating standard are selected to represent the Royal Marines and if selected the Royal Navy. Throughout the year we aim to have Davis Cup style matches against the other 3 services(RN/Army/RAF) along with some civilian clubs and University teams. The Inter Service Championships are held twice yearly with Royal Marines representing at both standards of play. The ‘B’ team competition is held every April while the ‘A’ team competition is staged in early August at Wimbledon on world class grass courts. Currently 3 of the 6 ‘A’ team players are Royal Marines including the number 1 seed! As an organisation we compete in the Navy Inter region completion for which we are the current reigning champions along with the Navy Indoor and Summer titles. Post Summer leave and at the end of the outdoor season we hold our annual RM championship to determine the Corps champions at both doubles and singles. We are always looking at ways to raise funds for the RMC including our annual tennis raffle which is held in conjunction with a Wimbledon ticket draw at our training venue. This year we will also be embarking on a 24hr tennisathon in Portsmouth as part of the ‘100 events in 100 days’ challenge. For more information please get in touch via the details above.
