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.
Reading Swimming Club is mourning the sudden loss of Katie Henderson who tragically died in a road traffic accident on Friday 12 June. Tributes have been paid by many of her fellow master swimmers.
During August RSC reduces the amount of sessions it runs to allow swimmers and coaches to have a break. This is called Tickover and is factored into the monthly fees for the year.
