Welcome to the Laytown & Bettystown Lawn Tennis Club Website!
Laytown & Bettystown Lawn Tennis Club is located on the Golf Links Road just outside Bettystown, Co Meath. Originally part of Laytown & Bettystown Golf Club the club was established over 100 years ago. When established the club had two tennis courts and the facilities have expanded and the club boasts five all weather, floodlit tennis courts.
Affiliated to Tennis Ireland the club prides itself on having an active competitive and social tennis programme for both its senior and junior members all year long. With participation in all the Dublin Lawn Tennis Council Leagues, morning and evening social tennis and hosting its own East Coast Senior Open and North East Junior Open there is something to suit everyone.
The club also hosts its senior and junior Club Championships at the end of the summer season. A full calendar of club events is available on the website, which is updated on a regular basis. Please check the club website (www.laytownbettystownltc.com) or the notice boards in the club house for news on events. We also have a page on Facebook which you can join to keep up to date.
With its own in-house Level 2 Tennis Ireland registered professional tennis coach the club ensures access to a Junior coaching programme throughout the year. With participation in the programme starting at as young as the age of six, juniors are learning new skills and above all having fun and keeping fit. When the coaching stops, the club runs tennis fun camps over the school holiday period.
The club has also enjoyed international success with one Junior player representing Ireland at Under 14 and Under 16s. The club has won several Junior Leagues with the most recent win being in the 2013 Leinster Tennis Boys Under 12’s Summer League.
With over 300 members in the club, there is always a welcome for new members. The club boasts a friendly atmosphere, with social round robins or team tennis played most Thursday nights, weather permitting.
