Llandysul Paddlers Canoe Club
Llandysul Paddlers Canoe Club is based in West Wales and was founded in 1984 by Chris Berry and Trevor Grace. The club has had many great years with membership continuing to increase at a steady pace.
The club has seen lots of changes over the years and the most dynamic of these was "Project 94". This was a document that was put together to help plan the future of the club.
In 1997 we managed to secure funding from the Local Authority, European backing, the Welsh Canoeing Association and the Foundation for the sports and arts. This was used to start "Project 94" and we managed to develop the two vacant houses next the river Teifi in Llandysul into the clubhouse that is used today.
The main club activities are Slalom, Freestyle, Surf and Canadian Canoeing. We welcome families, disabled, competitive and recreational paddlers. There is no age limit and everyone is welcome.
The membership fees for the club have not gone up for many years and are £20 for a full adult member, £10 for non paddling adults, £10 for all under 18's, £10 for students or the unemployed. Family membership is £45.
The club is run by a committee that meets every 2 months to discuss future developments.
We hold regular training sessions in Llandysul Swimming Pool and on the river Teifi.
