On Wednesday 7th. of February 2007 a star studded guest list attended the Carmarthenshire Sports Personality Awards for 2006. Two of Carmarthen Judo Clubs members had been nominated and had reached the final three.

Louise Beard, Club Coach, was nominated by the club for coach of the year. This nomination was for outstanding service in 2006 where she continued to coach and support members at weekend competitions and gradings. Louise wasn't chosen this year but Mr. Steadman Davies of Sanshirokwai, Llanelli was chosen. "I suppose if you are going to be beaten its a consolation that it went to a judo coach of Steadmans reputation" she added.
