Learn to Scuba Dive

Have you ever considered learning to scuba dive but didn't know if it was for you? Why not come for a try dive?

Try dives take place at Hough End Leisure Centre on Friday evenings. To book a place simply contact us.

Try dives cost £10 and there is no obligation to join the club however, should you wish to join, this will be deducted from your membership fee.

Our training programmes are affiliated to the internationally recognised Sub Aqua Association and IANTD. Also, it costs considerably less to train with us than at other diving organisations.


Play Octopush

Octopush is kind of underwater hockey: It's fast, it's furious, it gets you fit and improves your snorkelling skills!

The club play octopush at Hough End Leisure Centre on Monday evenings.

If you want to play, come down to the pool just before 20:00 and bring a mask, snorkel, fins and a glove to protect your bat hand. Bats are provided.
