Rufforth Tennis Club was founded in 1993.
Starting out with two hard courts and a single team in the York Mixed Tennis League, Rufforth now proudly possesses four teams playing tennis in the second, forth, seventh and tenth mixed divisions; three ladies’ teams which play in the second, forth and seventh divisions of the Fulford Ladies Invitation League; a men’s team which features in the fifth division of the Tyke Petroleum York Men’s Tennis League; and a team which endures the harsh cold of the Wetherby Winter League.
A third court was added in 2004. The courts were resurfaced in 2014.
Club nights are held each and every Monday and Thursday evening, from 6.30 pm. Floodlights provide the ability to play tennis year-round. The adjacent clubhouse offers toilets, changing, and cooking facilities.
