Welcome To Letchworth Sports and Tennis Club (LSTC)

Our History

LSTC is a traditional family club with generations of many families that continue to play today. The Club has a great history with the original outdoor club starting in 1905. Members of the outdoor club assisted in the move to the new indoor and outdoor facility in 2005, some becoming board members and most still active members today. The facilities and surroundings at the club are family friendly with CCTV and entrance/exit at the reception desk to ensure a safe environment for members and enabling children to play freely within the facility.

The club supports various charities and chooses one main charity a year to further support throughout the year. Over the past few years, the club has supported Blood Runners, Child Autism, Cancer Hair Care and this year it's East Anglian Air Ambulance. Regular social events play an important role in integrating members of all ages and backgrounds.  The club continues to be a prominent club within Hertfordshire and the East Region with Mini, junior, adult and veteran teams competing throughout the year in local, county, regional and national team competitions.
