Ruthin Rays Swimming Club is a friendly but competitive club based in Ruthin, Denbighshire
It is with deep sadness that we have to inform you that Chris Clements, our Head Coach, mentor and friend, passed away last night. Our deepest sympathies are with his wife Ann and his daughter Ceri. It is a huge shock to everyone.
It is beyond words how much he will be missed and how important he has been in our children’s lives. It seems as if Chris has been with Ruthin Rays Swimming Club forever, and often single handedly kept the club going. How he has developed our swimmers and their swimming technique has always attracted wonderful compliments from the swimming community. We are thankful for all he has done and we will miss him.
We will let you all know information about funeral arrangements as I know them.

Try it Yourself
We welcome swimmers of abilities ranging from stroke improvement, those looking to improve stamina, fitness and strength through to national competition. Our coaching team run sessions five days a week.
We are a small but effective club, and importantly every member counts. Our target is to develop each individual swimmer to their optimum, to equip them with all the skills to achieve this.
Alongside the coaches we have a dedicated team of volunteers on the committee who enable the club to run smoothly, and numerous officials who help at events ranging from our internal galas to the regional championships.
