The Royal Spanish Tennis Federation (Spanish: Real Federación Española de Tenis, RFET) is the national governing body of tennis in Spain.

The Royal Spanish Tennis Federation is a member of the regional association Tennis Europe and the International Tennis Federation (ITF).

The organisation is responsible for the Spain Davis Cup team and the Spain Fed Cup team.

Federation headquarters is in Barcelona, at the emblematic building of the old restaurant of the Font del Gat, created by the architect Puig i Cadafalch in 1918.

In 2008, the Spanish postal service, Correos, released a postage stamp commemorating the centennial of the RFET.[1]
