What is Caving?
Reading University Caving Club is one of the most unique sports societies at Reading. Most people have heard of caving but don't really know what it entails (we promise, it's nothing like the Descent). By definition it is the non-competitive exploration of underground passages, but this really is just the start. Every cave is different: crawling, walking, climbing, abseiling, wading through water and sometimes swimming are all part of the exploring underground. It's a bit like inverted Mountaineering - you go down first and come up later.
If you want to find out more about caving, we have a short recorded presentation online, and throughout the year you can talk to our members in person at one of our regular socials or email us directly

We are working to provide activity through online sources
Due to government guidelines we cannot host physical meetings or trips. However we are working hard to host online activities and virtual content for our returning and prospective members. We aim to establish a thriving community within our club/society which will allow us to hit the ground running when we are able to physically meet up.
