BREAKING NEWS - 23 NOVEMBER 2020
Boris Johnson has just announced that swimming pools can open in ALL tiers. We will now wait for Swim England's published guidance to give us more clarity, especially for our members aged over 18 before making any further announcements.

SWIMMING POOLS AND THE LATEST LOCKDOWN NOVEMBER 2020
Reading Swimming Club has been back to training successfully in the water for the last 14 weeks and keeping everyone safe thanks to the partnerships with our pool providers and the robust COVID measures we have in place, however, last night’s announcement from the Government about a national lockdown will have an impact on our return to swimming plan.
We understand that Swim England are currently in discussions with the Government about the need to allow people to exercise and stay fit during lockdown as this is beneficial to both physical and mental well-being. We are therefore waiting until Swim England have advised all clubs on the outcome of their discussions with the Government.
The management committee will be planning for all eventualities and will provide further updates over the next few days. These will be posted on Facebook, TU and Squad WhatsApp chats.
As a community we are confident that we can stay strong, focus on being positive and working together so that we can get through the next few weeks ahead.
