Polo Fields Project

Our club has been blessed with the DeWilde family donation of our longtime location, The Bellingham Polo & Rugby Fields.

Currently, we are in the planning and development stage for upgrading the facility to a more modern community center primarily used for rugby, but open to other uses as well for Whatcom County.

We have determined this is a 3 Million Capital Campaign and the planning process includes the Fundraising through Member Dues, Donations and by participating in our club fundraisers, Grants and Commercial Sponsorships.

We will list out all club fundraisers on our calendar and provide notification via our newsletter and Facebook page.

Grants are being pursued by our Grant writing team at PARC Resources, our Board has hired them in 2019 to develop a plan and apply for those grants we qualify for. Sponsorships with the club range anywhere from $1,000 to $50,000 per year and can customize as needed. We live in a very generous community and our club and sport provide a great service in helping develop future leaders of character.

As always, we are grateful for your involvement and look forward to seeing you at club.


Our mission is to develop the sport of rugby across all levels, providing opportunities for recreation and competition throughout Whatcom & Skagit County. Chuckanut Bay is committed to providing a positive atmosphere where athletes, families, and fans can come and enjoy the spirit of competition, camaraderie, and sportsmanship. Established in 1973, and a 501c3 non profit since 2003, the club has enjoyed a solid reputation as a leader and developer of talent in the Pacific Northwest.
