During Reading school holidays and Bank Holidays our swimming pool timetables will change. Timetables are available to download on the bottom of our swimming page leading up to each holiday, and also to pick up in our Centres.


Christchurch Meadows Paddling Pool

The paddling pool at Christchurch Meadows will not reopen this season. Public safety has to remain our overriding priority with the virus still in circulation and the need to enforce safe social distancing would be extremely difficult in such a popular facility.
