Our Story

We opened our doors in 1973 and have grown from a four court indoor tennis facility to a premier, full service tennis and fitness club. We are proud to serve Whatcom County and beyond with programs and services for 5 year olds through your golden years. We are passionate about being a part of your good health and strive to be the best part of your day. Stop by for a Tour so we can show you around and see how we meet your needs.

  • Establish a relationship with all Members and guests and do our best to introduce Members and guests to one another.
  • Provide our Members and guests with answers to their questions and provide the resources you need.
  • Offer an accessible approach to tennis, fitness, and overall health that includes cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, nutrition, stress management, and lifestyle considerations.
  • Develop fun, safe, and effective programs that offer variety in the RIDE Studio, on the TENNIS courts, in the STRONG and ZONE training areas, and beyond! We will continue to create and implement unique programs tailored to the specific needs of our Members.

  • Operate the Club in an effective and efficient manner to ensure we have accurate information and documentation for members’ accounts and scheduling of appointments.
  • Ensure that our Club is clean, organized and presentable every day. We aim to attend to and repair any malfunctions or problems on the Club property as quickly as possible.
  • Make meaningful improvements every month to our Club facilities, Member services, programs, and amenities.
  • We, too, will practice what we preach: exercise on a regular basis so that we can also be healthier and happier!
