NDSC update with West Berkshire moving into Tier 3 tonight

Steph Holland

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 in the masters/youth sessions.

The centres have confirmed they will remain open so we will continue with all sessions up to and including 23 December, recommencing on 3 January as planned for all swimmers under 18.  The only exception to this is that Tuesday morning’s session, 22 December, is cancelled.

Brockhurst remains open for lessons tomorrow and in January but they have requested that viewing is done from outside the gallery in a socially distant manner.

We will update you with any changes, but I believe the Tiers are not expected to be reviewed until 11th January, so we do not expect any changes are until then.

Best wishes to all
