About our Club
We are a small friendly diving club offering scuba diver training, club diving trips and social activities. We've been around for over 60 years, and have a range of friendly members with different diving experiences.
We meet at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre on a Wednesday evening. Our pool time is 21:00 - 22:00, and we have theory sessions running beforehand. We have 2 lanes in the competition pool which has a 3 metre deep section, and on the second Wednesday of each month we have the diving pool which is 6 metres deep. During University term time, we have the 6m pool every week when sharing with SHSUSAC.
We usually meet up in the Old Queens Head pub after our pool session to share diving stories and organise trips.
We dive in the UK most months and also organise trips in both the UK and overseas - see our club calendar for details of trips coming up and social events.
But if you really want to get to know the club read our members stories or visit us at a club night.
We welcome people new to diving and those already qualified with BSAC, PADI, CMAS, SSI etc. Please make contact and we will be in touch about how to join us!
We're currently recruiting... want to learn to scuba dive or dust off your qualification?
We are able to offer try dives at a small cost of £15. We will take you in the pool with a Nationally Qualified Instructor, show you how to use your kit and help you have a really fun time getting the feel for scuba diving.
You can purchase a Try Dive voucher as a gift for someone or just for you. Here's an example below:
For those who've already caught the bug, please get in touch to join us. You can join and just dive, or take advantage of our free training to get to the next level!
