Dear all, Hopefully you and your family had a restful christmas break . A very Happy New Year to all of you. It is both sad and frustrating to be under lockdown once more but I think its clear there was no other option. We will get back to the water as soon as possible but in the meantime we will offer our virtual land training to all members and their families. We would really love for everyone to join these as it helps keep a base level of fitness...

Hi all. Needless to say the latest news wasn't what we'd all hoped but it wasn't too much of a shock either. The main point for us all to contemplate is that Christmas isn't cancelled by any means, its simply different. We are mostly all fortunate enough to be able to celebrate it, some people aren't as lucky this year. Please enjoy the family time as best you can and take the moment to remember there are more important things going on in our lives. I'll take this opprtunity to...

Evening all, Can't say I expected to be writing so soon but as I am sure you will be aware with Berkshire moving into Tier 4 tonight the leisure centres will be closing and training is therefore suspended with immediate effect. We will send any information on returning as soon as this is available to us. Wishing you and your families a Happy Christmas and New Year. Steph

Dear all As West Berkshire moves into Tier 3 tonight this will sadly bring a few changes to swimming club activities. In accordance with government and Swim England guidance indoor sport for under 18’s can continue in Tier 3. Swimmers that have turned 18 during this current school year for these purposes are deemed as under 18, i.e. year 13’s. Unfortunately, we must stop any masters swimming in accordance with guidelines whilst we are in Tier 3. Masters last availible session will be tonight. Youth swimmers can continue to swim...

Our swimming lessons and Cruisers sessions at Brockhurst School will finish this Saturday, 19th, and recommence on Saturday 9th January. Our AGM will be held...

After Boris and his band of merry men announced the end of the current restrictions from next week, we can confirm that we will be returning to training from Wednesday, December 2nd. Both Northcroft and Hungerford sessions will resume as per pre-Lockdown2. Once again, we will be asking for swimmers to sign in as you did before. Please, not signing in prior to the session may mean you're not allowed to swim irrespective of numbers in the pool - this goes for all squads. We will also be asking swimmers...

Dear swimmers and parents, It’s lovely to see so many of you back in the pool and it was lovely to see so many take up the August sessions at Crosfields School. From a coaching prospective, it’s great to be back by the pool where we belong. Due to the current climate we find ourselves in, we have had to make slight adjustments to the squad structure and I want to give you an update on some of the changes. Janet Hopkins has now stepped down from teaching Cruiser and...
