Previously a member of the Prokom Trefl Sopot youth team, Łapeta made his career debut in 2005 on the main squad in the Polish Basketball League (PLK). He played in five consecutive EuroLeague seasons with the team between 2007 and 2012, making his last season the most successful one (4.7 points per game, 4.3 rebounds while shooting 55% from the field and 73% from the free throw line).[1] He played with Zielona Góra in the EuroCup the following year.

In 2013, he moved to Dzūkija Alytus of the Lithuanian Basketball League (LKL). He became a center piece of the team, leading the league in blocks per game during his first season there (with 1.5).
