Central pool closed on the 31st January 2018. It was home to RRSSC's home for nigh on 50 years.
Whilst the club has known of Central's impending closure, the 31st nonetheless came as a sad day.
The Reading Chronicle reported on the 30th November 2015 -
"CENTRAL Pool is to close for good as Reading Borough Council announces its reshuffle of swimming facilities.
Plans have been drafted to completely replace the site and create two new pools in the town including a "neighbourhood" pool at Palmer Park Stadium to replace Arthur Hill in the long term.
A location has not yet been selected for the replacement for Central Pool but a temporary eight lane 25m extension is set to be built at Rivermead Leisure Complex in the meantime.
The cash-strapped council has also said it will be looking for a development partner to reduce the building costs of any new facilities and take over the day to day running.
The Battle Street site is the borough's only competition standard pool and is home to multiple clubs including Reading Swimming Club and the Albatross Diving Club.
However... the new pool not expected for around five years".
