Hi 5 Watersports and activities at Reading Lake is the premier destination for water skiing and activities in Berkshire.
Located at the Reading Lake, Berkshire. You can locate Hi 5 water sports & activities 5 minutes from junction 11 M4, 10 minutes from Reading Town Centre.
When you arrive for your water sports session, your instructor will give you a short safety briefing before taking you through the basics of waterskiing, including a land lesson. They’ll provide some essential tips and techniques to ensure you spend as much time on the skis: rather than in the water. Coaching is also provided through to advanced level.
Onsite we have 2 water sports lakes (with 2 slalom courses) for water skiing wakeboarding, banana & ringo rides.
We also offer a variety of land and water based activities for all skill levels. Our land activities offer great entertainment for groups, including segway’s, human table football and axe throwing. Whether planning a corporate team building event or party we have a large selection of activities to select from.
Our water sports are a thrilling way to take in the beautiful scenery of Reading Lake. Tows can be booked every day from April to November and weekends during the winter (subject to conditions) and we operate in most weather conditions except lightning storms. We provide all the equipment, wetsuits, buoyancy aids, waterski’s and wakeboards.
Water- skiing lets you skim across the water while being towed by a powerful motorboat and is a great sport. Whether you are a novice or a competitive water skier, it is a fantastic way to have fun and get fit.
Beginners, our experienced team will provide training on body positioning and techniques on land. After mastering the basics, you will transition to the water, where we provide a training bar for maximum stability and easy supervision.
When our instructor is confident in your progress you will get to have a go at being towed behind the boat. Our instructor will coach you to reach your maximum potential, depending on progress.
Wakeboarding is a more recent and exciting sport.
The sport is a combined skill of surfing and water skiing. Wakeboarding provides a workout and is also good practise for Snowboarders during the summer while being an exhilarating way to experience reading lake.
Banana and Ringo Rides
For banana rides we use a six person inflatable and 3 person inflatable for the ringo rides. Suitable for ages 7 years plus.
For corporate events, team building, kids’ parties and stag/hens parties. Hi 5 have a wide range of packages that offer a combination of land and water activities.
