Note: This swim changed both time and venue at the end of 2016 because the council is closing the original pool.
From 6th January 2017, the swimming sessions take place every Friday evening at the Meadway Sport Centre in Tilehurst, Reading. Assemble between 20:30 and 20:45 at the pool. Please ask staff to let you though the barrier and direct you to the meeting location. Swimming is between 20:45 and 21:45, and the building closes at 22:00.
The pool is run by Reading Borough Council and they provide the lifeguards. It is 20 metres long, with a shallow end (1m) and deep end (1.3m). There are male and female changing rooms and free lockers are available pool side.
There is a large car park at the sports centre which is free up to one hour and £1 for up to two hours. These parking restrictions are strictly enforced by number-plate recognition cameras and pool staff cannot override the system. Payments should be made at the machine at the entrance.
The annual membership fee is £10 for singles and £18 for couples. Membership runs for one year from the date of joining.
The cost is £4.50 per session for club members, £5.50 for non-members.
