Clontarf Lawn Tennis Club was founded in 1887 as one court in a field, to the rear of No. 45 St.Lawrence’s Road, at a time when Clontarf was it’s own borough and it’s Town Hall was on the site of Old St. Anthony’s Church. After a short time one court just wasn’t enough, and by 1893 there was a pavilion and 7 grass courts laid out on leased land off Oulton Road.
Unfortunately, in June 1982 the clubhouse was burnt down, yet by December 1984 the club opened a new rebuilt main clubhouse. The club celebrated it’s centenary in 1987, and 20 years later, a re-developed clubhouse, the current building was opened on 27th September 2007.
In 2017 CLTC celebrated its 130th Anniversary.
