David Rice (born 1 January 1989) is an English former tennis player. He is best known for his activity on the doubles circuit, where he usually played with Sean Thornley.
He qualified for the Wimbledon men's doubles for the first time in June 2011 with Sean Thornley. They lost in the first round to Jamie Murray and Sergiy Stakhovsky, 3–6 5–7. He has played in Wimbledon 3 times.
After failing to qualify in 2012, he and Thornley were awarded a wildcard for the 2013 championship, losing 4–6 3–6 7–6(7) 6–4 4–6 to Marinko Matosevic and Frank Moser.
In 2007 Rice had funding and coaching suspended for 'unprofessional behaviour' after a photograph appeared on the social networking site Bebo. Rice's father argued that the episode had been "blown out of all proportion" and that his son "likes the odd night out with his mates, the same as any other 18-year-old."
