Welcome to the RAPTC Association

The RAPTC was formed in 1860 as the Army Gymnastic Staff. It was renamed the Army Physical Training Staff in 1918 and was given its present corps status by Army Order 165 in 1940.

Based at the Army School of Physical Training (ASPT) in Aldershot, its instructors are attached to every battalion and regiment in the British Army.

On Saturday 13th November 2010 at the Field of Remembrance, in the Royal Albert Hall, Her Majesty The Queen granted the APTC Royal Patronage.
