Mariette Claassens

I joined the Armed Forces in August 2010 firstly as a Medic, and then later transfered into the Adjutant General Corps (AGC).

I have served at units all over the UK, my most current being the Royal Tank Regiment, Tidworth. As a unit we have been busy with Covid 19 test stations and it’s proven to be a very busy year!

I have a huge passion for Women’s Rugby and use to play for the Army, Combined Services and Gloucester-Hartpury Premiership team, I have since retired from playing and currently coach the Adjutant General Corps women’s team.

I have a big interest in Sports Massage and I’m currently completing my Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage.

I reside with my partner Anna in a little Cotswold village and am the proud mother of two beautiful girls, Lucea (5) and Ava 18 months.

I like to keep busy and enjoy long country walks and being by the seaside with family, friends and the dog. Once a year I take part in a charity fundraising event for Maggie’s Cancer trust. I’m a fit energetic individual and enjoy running, cycling, and the gym in general.

I have recently received a Commanders Commendation (Coin) for my contribution to various subject matters at work. I also received my AGC Sports Colours for my contribution to Women’s Rugby in the Armed Forces.
