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.
For the first time since Rebecca Cooke in the 90’s Reading Swimming Club can celebrate one of their swimmers making the finals at the British Swimming Championships.
Thursday morning session started for all at 5:30am. This was an optional early morning session for our younger swimmers however 26 swimmers chose to take part. Our thanks to Gordon for taking this session which was a follow-up from yesterday’s sprint session. Once again there were some very impressive swims with Megan achieving a further PB on her 50m Free.
Today started with our younger Dev 3 and Dev 2 swimmers getting up at 5:10 to be in the pool for 05:30. The set comprised of IM and a challenging kick set. All did very well and returned to the house for a hot shower and some rest before breakfast.
