Founded in 1958, Meteor Waterski Club is based on Lough Henney, County Down in Northern Ireland, about 20 minutes drive from Belfast, and is made up of 65 members who share an interest in waterskiing and wakeboarding.
The club boasts a private lake to ensure safe and uninterrupted skiing for members and visitors. Their world class towboat is in constant use from May to September with an experienced driver on duty every evening during the week and afternoons at the weekend. They now also have a full-time driver during the busy summer months so that members can get out on the water on mid-week afternoons. The lake facilities include national ranking slalom and jump courses for tournament skiers. The tow boat is a Mastercraft 197, fitted with a wakeboard ballast system and tower.
The on shore facilities include a permanent club house with changing facilities including hot showers, a lounge area and kitchen area. The clubhouse's lakeside setting is an ideal place to sit, enjoy a barbecue and relax before heading out on the water - there's no better way to unwind on a warm summer evening! The club has all the equipment nessecary for beginner skiers no matter what discipline they choose, including wakeboarding, and there are always members willing to give you a few tips on how to improve. Anually the club host a national ski tournament in early summer as well as the WakeUp wakeboard event in late summer.
