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 at any time – 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. We also arrange a wide range of other non-caving activities, including plenty of enjoyable social events.

During the Autumn term, we organise several caving trips that are specifically tailored towards people who have never been caving before, however new cavers are always very welcome to join us on any other trip as well.

The easiest way to join is to sign up online on the Reading Students’ Union website. You will be asked to pay the membership fee (currently £15 for students, £20 for non-students), and obtain Sports Fed insurance which is required for membership of any Reading University sports club, and can be purchased from £18.

Alternatively, feel free to meet us in person – whether at one of our regular Monday evening meet-ups (see our Instagram page, 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, message us via Instagram, 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 Conduct. 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 Students’ Union.

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.

      Sounds like you’re our kind of guy! Why don’t you come down to to one of our Monday pub nights? 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.
