Reading University Caving Club

Join Our Club

Thank you for your interest in the Reading University Caving Club! You’d be very welcome to become a member – whether or not you’re currently a student at the university, and regardless of your level of experience. We visit a huge variety of caves, suitable for all abilities. You don’t even necessarily need to be interested in going caving – we have quite a few ‘social cavers’ in our club, who enjoy all our other non-caving activities!

You’re also welcome to join at any time of year. We organise several caving trips in the Autumn term that are specifically tailored towards people who have never been caving before, however we can always accommodate new cavers on any other trip as well.

The easiest way to join is to sign up online on the RUSU website. You will be asked to pay the membership fee (currently £10.15 for students, £12.15 for non-students), and obtain Sports Fed insurance which is required for membership of any Reading University sports club, and can be purchased from £15.

Alternatively, feel free to meet us in person – whether at one of our regular Monday evening meet-ups (see our Facebook group or our event calendar for details of our next pub night), or at the Freshers Fayre or Presentation, or at one of our social events. We can then talk you through the steps to take.

Or if you have any questions you’d like to ask us before you join, fill in our Contact Form or post on our Facebook group.

When you come on your first trip with us, we’ll ask you to fill in a form with your contact details, and to agree to our Code of Contact. You’ll also need to supply us with your Sports Fed number, if we don’t know this already. If you have any queries about Sports Fed, speak to the people at The Hub in the Student’s Union.

We also recommend signing up to our Mailing List and joining our Facebook Group, to be kept informed of upcoming trips and other club events, and to interact with other members.

We look forward to meeting you!

    I would like to join a caving club and happen to live not a million miles away from Reading. I’m 23 and not currently a student but am up for a laugh and would love to meet some people my own age who want to go caving as well.

    ATB,

    Ben

      Sounds like you’re our kind of guy! Why don’t you come down to the College Arms on the first Monday of term? (That’s the 14th, this year.) I reckon about half our membership are non-students, and we’re always up for meeting new people.

      Make sure you’re on the mailing list too! That way if anything important changes you’ll know about it.
