Community Sport & Leisure

We have an ambition to get "More people more active, more often" in local communities throughout Carmarthenshire by ensuring there are appropriate and accessible programmes, that sports clubs and organisations are developed to have the capacity for members and that they provide quality experiences. 

In order to achieve this, we deliver programmes directly and provide development and funding support to sports clubs, organisations and individuals; we also run an annual awards ceremony (Sports Personality Awards) to recognise and reward sportspeople, coaches and volunteers.

With a whole range of activities on offer in a variety of settings across the county, what’s stopping you from getting active?

Aside from the extensive programme we offer at our leisure centres, we deliver 16 health-related physical activity sessions each week in six outreach venues across Carmarthenshire:

  • Llandybie Memorial Hall
  • Llanwrda Village Hall
  • Trallwm Community Hall, Llanelli
  • St Mary’s Catholic Church, Carmarthen
  • Princess Gwenllian Hall, Kidwelly
  • Ammanford Pensioners Hall

The sessions focus mainly on improving strength and balance of the participants to reduce their risk of falling. The sessions provide expert advice and support and provide people with the tools to remain independent.

National Exercise Referral Scheme
NERS is funded by Public Health Wales. The scheme aims to improve the physical and mental health of client referrals with a diverse range of conditions including patients who have suffered strokes or heart attacks, cancer, angina, diabetes and emphysema. Patients need to be referred by their GP or hospital. The scheme offers around 80 exercise sessions each week at Actif Fitness centres in Llanelli, Carmarthen, Ammanford and Newcastle Emlyn.


To use our resources effectively to make the biggest difference to sport & leisure in the community, we have categorised sports into and provide development support accordingly:

  • Focus Sports: Cycling, Hockey, Netball, Racquets
  • Priority Sports: Aquatics, Athletics, Cricket, Football, Golf, Rugby
  • Recognised Sports: Remaining 18 sports recognised by Sport Wales
