Friendly, welcoming and inclusive are just a few words I would use to describe Reading University Swimming Club. The club is an amazing way to meet new people who share an interest in swimming, to compete across the county against different universities and also to be a part of a sociable and fun group.
As a club we split in two; the competitive swimmers, for those who want to compete in competitions all year round; and the social swimmers, for those who want to build fitness, and do something they enjoy!
One meet the competition squad will attend is the BUCS National competition which is held in Sheffield. This is the highlight of the competition year, where we race in the day and have a social in the evening!
Despite being split in two, the Swimming Club comes together for our social events which happen at least once a month, these being both drinking and non-drinking socials. Friendly is the first word I use to describe the Club; and that is because we value every member, whether we see them at every session, or once a week. The socials are a great way for us to bring everyone with a shared love of swimming together to have a great time! Our first social of the year will have a Baywatch theme and will be held on Wednesday the 16th of October, I hope to see you there!
