REGISTER NOW - 46th WMTS Congress and Championship, Lima, Peru, October 8-14, 2016


Welcome to the World Medical Tennis Society's website. If you are a tennis-playing medical doctor, from anywhere in the world, please read on. If you know of tennis-playing medical doctors, then please call this website to their attention.

This site has been developed to promote the WMTS. We want to gain new members. We want to impress physicians of the long, successful history of the organization, so they will attend our meetings and compete with us.

There are 4 main aspects of a WMTS meeting: 1) physical fitness through tennis, 2) great camaraderie among players, 3) scientific sessions that meet most governments' requirements, and 4) travel to many places in the world. "It doesn't get any better than that!"

Sign up! We'd like to meet you.

James L. Manion, M.D.
Executive Secretary

Dear WMTS members,

Lars Hagberg

I am Lars Hagberg, the president over the meetings in Indonesia (Bali) and Holland (Rotterdam). I have attended all meetings since 1987 except one and know the strengths of the organization and also some minor weaknesses. The outmost important value to attend the meetings is to get friends from all parts of the world, and many of them will be your friends for life. You also get an opportunity to travel to places with fantastic hospitality you may otherwise never experience. It is great to have a goal for your tennis exercise (exercise is good for your health!) and the competitions are highly interesting. The scientific part is also important where you get new ideas and input in your daily clinical work. The minor weaknesses is the almost "every meeting" tiring discussion who is a doctor or not. Let´s follow the rules but realize that medical education is different in various countries and let friendship be the leading star while dealing with these issues, but also when making calls on the court. It will be great to meet you all in Bali and Rotterdam and I am proud to be your president.

Lars Hagberg


President, WMTS (2013-2015)

Excerpts from Dr. Stanley McCampbell’s, “My Memoirs of…The World Medical Tennis Society,” written in 1991.

“To me it has been a great honor to know and enjoy the friendship of doctors from around the world. It has been the most exciting experience of my life. Doctors…can be assured that if they travel thousands of miles to meetings, they will be certain of a warm welcome, well-organized tournaments and scientific sessions, and a grand, good time. It is an opportunity, unequalled, as far as I know, of enjoying the friendship of interesting, fun loving, sportsman-like doctors who will be friends for life. I would certainly like to do it all over again.”
