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 and open water swimming.
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.
We provide all the equipment, wetsuits, buoyancy aids, waterski’s and wakeboards.
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.
