Between 1912 and 1979 the area and premises of the Rinella Tennis Club served as the Wireless and Telegraphy Station used by the British Royal Navy during the two wars which Malta had to face during its history.
The Royal Navy had several stations in different countries. The functions of these stations were mainly to send messages to ships either direct or via a broadcast and receive messages from ships deployed in the Mediterranean.
In fact by the 31st December 1901 the Royal Navy had a total of eight shore stations. Later in 1909 stations were established at Cleethorpes and Horsea, at Gibraltar in 1910 and at Rinella, Malta in 1912. One of the photos in the Club's History photo gallery shows the first crew of Royal Navy officers stationed at the Rinella Wireless and Telegraphy station back in 1912.
