Bellingham City Open

Last Day to sign up for the USTA sanctioned Bellingham City Open. The Junior Challengers  8/8 to 8/10

and then the Adults 8/10-8/12.

Have Fun & Compete!

Club Website Attacked!

Our website was attacked over the weekend!  Apparently Microsoft issued 12 patches over the weekend and before our fabulous IT guy could get them all applied, some nasty crawler leeched onto our website.

During this time before we cleansed and sterilized our site, if you clicked on the link provided by the leech, you would have been sent to a russian website.  Damn those spies!  My IT guy tells me that your computer was really only at risk if you clicked the link.

Our site has been secure since Tuesday, but took a couple of days to be recertified by the big boy search engines of google and firefox.  We are now fully back in action.

Sorry about any distress this may have caused you.

Phase III Renovation Complete!

All 5 courts are re-opened and they look fantastic!  Not only the the courts LOOK better, they ARE better - we are 23% brighter on the courts.  That is innovation....brighter lights without using more electricity.  Now THAT is just what we wanted!

Bellingham Herald Features Our Renovations!

Bellingham tennis club owners reinvest in core business


The most profitable option in business isn't always the best one, and that's something Doug and Robin Robertson have realized with their tennis club.

The Robertsons own Bellingham Tennis Club as well as Fairhaven Fitness at 800 McKenzie Ave. They are in the midst of a major renovation, which includes fixing the roof, resurfacing the tennis courts and improving the lighting. It's a project that will cost more than $200,000 and is expected to be completed at the end of summer. The facility is still in use during the remodel, but a grand re-opening celebration is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 8.
