Bellingham Tennis Club owners celebrating 15 years with open house

To celebrate 15 years of owning the Bellingham Tennis Club and Fairhaven Fitness, Doug and Robin Robertson are hosting an open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 16. The club is at 800 McKenzie Ave., in Fairhaven.

When the Robertsons bought the Bellingham Tennis Club 15 years ago they didn’t know what to expect, they said in a news release.

“It’s been a wild ride,” Robin Robertson said in the release. “Doug was busy with his law practice and so running the club was really up to me. It was a steep learning curve and I didn’t know if we were going to make it.”

It took four years of expanding the club, adding staff members and creating programs for kids and adults before the Robertsons broke even on the business.

Free activities will be offered at the open house including introductory training classes for body conditioning, indoor cycling, suspension training and tennis clinics for all ages. The Robertsons are also offering a one-day-only 15th anniversary deal for a $15  tennis or fitness membership.

Learn more at or call the club at 360-733-5050.
