Rhondda Swimming Club, based in Ystrad, is the Rhondda’s number one competitive swimming club with some 150 swimming members training in 4 pools in Ystrad, Maerdy, Porth and Cardiff International Pool.


We cater for junior ‘learn to swim’ children aged 4+, and through classes follow the different stages of the National Plan for Teaching Swimming (new window). Senior swimmers are organised into a training squad and swim in regular, fiercely-contested open meets. We also enter friendly club galas – where the competition is just as keen.

Potential new members and aspiring athletes are warmly invited to enquire about joining. Don’t delay, ask about joining now. We welcome swimmers of all abilities.


We are Dragon Mark accredited. Dragon Mark is a quality assurance programme for all Swim Wales-affiliated aquatics clubs. Its primary purpose is to ensure clubs are meeting the highest standards of management and administration while also making sure that swimmers are being developed and supported in the best possible way.
