A strong home side made sure of the points in their opening fixture of the 2018 campaign. Philippa Page and Phil Sinton bagged a 31 game haul to guarantee the right result. The first couple were more than adequately supported by Captain Jack Benson and his partner for the evening Christine Place, with Liz Powell and Tom Frame continuing their successful partnership from last season. The visitors were always behind and were unable to close the gap as Rufforth displayed some exceptional tennis and the result never looked in doubt. The final score was 57 – 41
