“However our success this year is tinged with sadness as we lose our home pool. Central swimming pool has been Reading Royals main facilities to train and deliver all these results. I myself have so much history as a swimmer and a coach at this pool as do so many others. 30 years ago I swam in my first Christmas show and now have spent many hours on poolside helping many young athletes achieve their dreams and goals, including Olympians and international medallists. The swimming pool has been a huge part of so many people’s journeys and holds so many memories. It is devastating for our club to lose a pool that is the only one of adequate size and depth locally to deliver our training needs. Reading are not replacing the pool with another deep enough to accommodate us. We hope to do our best in the future without Central pool but will miss the many years the place has given to so many”.
