Water zorbing in Reading Central Swimming Pool

Standard
And now you can try zorbing on water at Reading Central Pool.
In zorbing, you bob in a ball, skimming the water. And now you can do zorbing in Reading every Sunday from 11am to noon and 2pm to 3pm. It’s just £3 for juniors and £5 for adults.

What is zorbing?

You just run, trip or lolly-dazy across the water, within the confines of a giant bubble.

The nature of the giant bubble and/or its operators ensures you do not float or fly away, somewhere in the Atlantic or down the River Kennet. That’s right — zorbing has also been spied along The Oracle Riverwalk!

Since the first time I saw someone water zorbing on Portobello Beach in Edinburgh, it has seemed like genuine fun.

I will let you know more about how to zorb if I give the zorbs a whirl. Hopefully so… and hopefully soon!

And don’t forget about Schweppe’s free swimming in Berkshire offer, good for all ages!

p.s. — For other cool family fun in Reading, check out my post about Carters Steam Fair happening later this month.

The following info is from Reading Borough Council.

Zorbing Sessions – get into the giant ball and walk on the water! Have races with your friends or just enjoy rolling around in the ball. Don’t miss the first session!

    We wrote a piece on what zorbing is (mainly about it being a huge hamster all for adults) but i like your explanation ‘the confines of a giant bubble!’ We may have to steal that sometime in the future. Feel free to link to the piece. http://www.goactivities.co.uk/activity-guide/adrenaline/zorbing

    BTW we also have so many activities near Reading like karting and paintballing and similar? Here is the link!
