Sport is coming back!

Logos of sports clubs in Reading

We concede that this is more exciting for some than others, but we can’t wait for the COVID restrictions on sport to be lifted.

Here at Templar our waistlines have increased and the dents on the sofa are truly cemented – we need to get out and do something other than a stroll down the Thames Promenade. That’s just us, our kids need to be out there as well, doing what kids do – running around a field with a ball, swinging a racket, balancing on a beam – anything!

With outdoor activities scheduled to open on the 29th March and hopefully indoor soon after on April 12, what better way* get our lives going again and join a club? (* perhaps going to the pub, restaurants, theatre, gigs, cinema, museums … but more on that later!)

Here in Reading and Caversham we are extraordinarily lucky to have a big choice open to us, from Athletics to Bowls through Rugby and Yoga – there is something that can help the most unmotivated of us have a go.

We’ve trawled the local area and pulled out a fairly large list of great local sports clubs and associations that we are sure will welcome new and old, have a look and give them a shout.
