On this page you will find details of meetings and events that are taking place throughout the year. Please keep checking for updates.

Carmarthen Leisure Centre

We meet between 4 and 5 pm on most Siundays of the year apart from Easter, Christmas and the New Year.  We have sole use of the main pool, the learner pool and the Health Suite comprising Jacuzzi, Sauna and Steam Room.  Many members find these facilities provide excellent additional therapy after swimming.

Club Galas

Our Senior Gala relay team comprising Arron Waters, Rosemary Wood, Poppy Firth & Emma Rees achieved first place in the 2018 Welsh National Gala.  They went on to the UK National Gala held in Sevenoakls, Kent and with the assistance of Hannah Gleeson won the Bronze Medal there.  A superb achievemnet - well done all !

Regrettably we will not be holding our own Gala this year.  Members who enjoy competitive swimming will have the opportunity to participate in other Club Galas through the Summer and Autumn.

Presentation Evening 2018

Over 50 members and supporters enjoyed a great evening of awards followed by an excellent buffet in the Carmarthen Athletic Ruby Football Clubhouse in November.    This event celebrates the achievements of the members, thanks the helpers and promotes the Club to help raise some needed funds.

Outing to Folly Farm

An outing to Folly Farm was enjoyed by 30 members and helpers on 17th March 2019.  The weather was sunny for most of the day allowing pleasant inspection of the animals.  The showers that followed in the afternoon permitted the inddor attractions to be enjoyed as well.   Many thanks to Castell Howell Foods for sponsoring this event.
