Hello, we are visiting family in Caversham and usually come for a play in the pool when we are down there. I can only see 'swim for fitness' sessions on the website timetable, are there no just open swim sessions on at the moment? My children are non swimmers, they just like to play in the shallow water.
Hi, is your pool open for family leisure swimming?
Hi,
Have been trying to get a hold of someone on the phone for the past few days now and I can never get through. Jenny left my wife a voicemail the other day with regards to our swimming bookings but it cut out. She emailed to explain this and we have only had two automated responses rather than someone getting in contact.
The customer service here has been shocking and we would really appreciate someone contacting us immediately! 🤬
Wondering How I can get tickets for the specials who are playing the Rivermead leisure centre in September can somebody advise me please
Hello,

What is the minimum age for foundation swimming lessons?

TIA
When will you be open for babies swimming again?
I have been trying to get hold of someone at the swim school for two days now. No one ever answers the phone or responds to emails. Please can someone contact me?
Filthy floors, dated, not particularly friwndly, overpriced, pool full of tiny pieces of foam. Tiny pool - Worst pool I've ever gone swimming in if I'm honest, and Very overpriced!
Hi we were at the Brick Show today but my son lost his cat teddy bear when he was their, could you tell me if it was handed in to the leisure centre? I have a very upset lil one so any help appreciated.
hey guys. When are your off-peak hours?
Tickets are still available for next weekend's big event, make sure you don't miss out! Go to our official FB page to find out more or visit our website at [email protected]">[email protected]
Why are the pop up pool changing rooms so dirty ???
