Our activities are suitable for all abilities and are intended to be inclusive for children and young people with SEND, and their families. Please contact your chosen centre directly if you wish to discuss individual requirements.

RSL Centre Closure Update FAQ

What is the current position with the leisure centres?

Due to the latest government advice including social distancing measures, Reading Borough Council has taken the decision to close a number of buildings, including the leisure centres from Tuesday 17th March.

How long will you be closed?

At this stage it is not possible to give any definitive timescales for closure. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow Government and Public Health guidance.

What will happen with my membership DD?

All direct debit payment for both membership and people on courses (swimming / badminton / trampoline lessons etc.) have been suspended. No further DD payments will be taken until the centres are running as normal. Any credits on accounts will be adjusted on resumption of the Direct Debit; alternatively if customers prefer then we will do a prorate refund for fees paid.

What will happen with my block booking?

All bookings have been suspended whilst the centres are closed. Booking slots will be held so you won’t lose your slot when we return to normal operation. If payment in advance has been made then our Administration team will be in touch to arrange refunds or credits.

I have a party / event booked. What is the situation with this?

All bookings for the next six weeks have been suspended. We will be in touch and either rearrange the booking or issue a full refund for any party / event affected by the closure.

General enquires relating to credits and payments can be made by contacting rsl.enquiries@reading.gov.uk quoting your name, address and membership number.

Children's Activities

Classes

Our class programme operates on a 'pay as you play' basis, with each class run by qualified coaches. This is a great way to try out a new activity with the added help of an experienced coach.

Courses

Our course programmes (Aqua Academy and Sports Academy) help children to develop skills in a range of sports. Pupils progress through structured National Governing Body stages and levels. Courses are run over a 52 week period, pupils may join courses throughout the year.

Sessions

Our 'drop in' sessions require no pre-booking. Simply come along and enjoy your chosen activity, and help your child to develop social skills and meet other children. We do not provide coaches for sessions.

Parties

Girl with Balloons
