The club was formed in 1992 as a result of two clubs – Old Hymerians RUFC and Hull & East Riding RUFC (1989). The club initially played at the Old Hymerians ground at Haworth Park (capacity 1,200) until the 2008–09 season when they moved to their current home; the Ferens Ground located at Chanterlands Avenue. The club has progressed up the rugby union pyramid, beginning life in the old North East 2, and won promotion to National League 2 North in 2009 - which at tier 4 is the highest position the club has reached. In 2009 a women's team was founded at the club and the women and girls section is continuously growing.
In 2015, after six seasons in National League 2 North, Hull were relegated back to the northern regional leagues. In 2019 the club won the North Premier (tier 5) league title for the very first time, making a return to National League 2 North.
The Ferens Ground is located on Chanterlands Avenue, next to Hull Sports Centre, about 2.5 miles from Hull Paragon Interchange and the city centre, with parking available both in and around the ground. Capacity is around 1,500, most of which is standing but there is also seating for up to 288 supporters.
