Reading Swimming Club, established in 1885, is one of the oldest swimming club in the country, and a founding member of the Berks and South Bucks County ASA. We are a large and progressive club, encompassing a learn to swim programme, competitive squads, a thriving Masters section (all abilities from social swimmers to world-ranked competitors), and a strong water polo section.
Our headquarters are at Central Pool, Battle Street, Reading, and we use a number of other venues for training and teaching. Our main club evening is Thursday, when swimmers train from 4:30 p.m. at Central Pool, and the club's management and members of the large volunteer team are on hand to answer your questions.
Central Pool in Reading will be closed for maintenance from Monday 5 January until Sunday 18 January. Thanks to Julie Richmond, Pat Harding and the coaching staff we have been able to find alternative pools to continue training. The alternative training schedule for this two week period is as follows:
