Competitions are a great day out for all the family and whenever possible, transport is provided by the club free of charge.

Our catchment area is the Caerphilly Borough and our membership base currently spans 38 primary schools and 16 comprehensive schools. As such, our children are part of a broad community and make many friends outside of their own school.
