Breakdown of athletic clubs in Waterford by size...July 2013

The following graph shows the breakdown of adult membership of athletic clubs in Waterford county. As you can see, there are four main clubs for adults in the county. While some might have more of an emphasis on track and field events, the majority of adult members of clubs tend to be involved in road running.
1st...West Waterford AC based in Dungarvan retain their 1st position as the largest club by adult membership in the county.
2nd...After a dramatic drop in membership numbers in 2012, Waterford AC are up up slightly this year but have some way to go to get back to where they were in 2011.
3rd...Tramore AC are a small club which has grown slightly year on year.
4th...Ferrybank AC is a club perhaps more associated with track and field. Their numbers have remained steady for the past two years.

In terms of club size based on the the number of junior and juvenile members...

1st...This time, the city based club Waterford AC are the largest having made a dramatic jump in membership numbers despite the large drop in 2012.
2nd...Numbers in Ferrybank AC seem to be on the decline.
