Reading Swimming Club, established in 1885, is one of the oldest 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, development and senior squads, a thriving Masters squad (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
During Thursday's well attended and successfull Annual General Meeting the new Executive Committee was elected. Immediately after the AGM they had their first meeting.
It is the ambition of most, if not all, age group swimmers to compete in the Nationals – the ASA’s National Age Group Championships (for those aged 11 to 14) and the National Championships (Youth, Open and MC), for those aged 15 and over. Five members of Reading Swimming Club raced at the Nationals in Sheffield recently – Jack Endersby (13), Josh Goble (15), Bethany Hunt (14), Imogen McCalman (14) and Hannah Stewart (15). Beth and Hannah went to the Nationals for the first time, this year.
