Pokémon Plus Games Club and Short Break

Pokémon Plus is a club for children and young people  on the spectrum, 
up to the age of 18, and their brothers and sisters to come and play Pokémon Trading cards and video games in an autism friendly environment. 

It is an official Pokémon League venue so the children can "battle" other "trainers" one to one to earn rewards and take part in our knockout tournament if they want to. We have DS’s and Pokémon games available to borrow if needed and a choice of non Pokémon Games on the Wii and Game Cube for siblings not so keen on Pokémon! 

Short break funding means we are able to offer supervised places for families who live in Reading Borough, so parents can go off and have a well earned break or stop and chat and have a coffee in our on-site parents room.

Registration forms and further details about this short break are available from the BAS office. Children must be at least 7 years old to have a short break place.

Pokémon Plus is open to families across Berkshire however we are currently operating a waiting list for this club. Do give the office a call if you would like to be added to the list.
