Rushmere Tennis Club started in the 1930s. In the 1950s the club was bought by the Town and County Building Society, which became the Anglia Building Society and then the Nationwide. In the 1980s the Nationwide sold the club back to the members. The location is secluded, sheltered by trees, with lawns and a loose gravel car park.The ramshackle character of the timber clubhouse includes a long veranda, an ideal shelter from the rain and perfect for sitting in the shade to watch the tennis on sunny days. There are four floodlight courts and a small practice court with a hitting wall.
