From it’s formation in the early 90’s The Diving Club has welcomed members from all agencies. It was formed by DiveStyle at that time by the then owner and some students.
The aim of the club is to provide a friendly forum in which newly qualified and experienced divers can go diving together and meet socially. We believe the club should enable members to develop their diving in a way that suits them, to compliment the training offered via the various diving agencies.
Since then, the club and DiveStyle have gone their separate ways enabling DiveStyle to focus on student needs, and allowing the club to cater to the demands of it’s members.
In order to support the changing dynamics of the diving industry, the club is now focused on maintaining a social group that can organise dives on an adhoc basis. Gone are the days for many clubs of a dive trip every week-end laid on by dive organisers.
To this end we meet once a month to catch up with what’s been going on, have a drink or two and plan future diving. We meet at the Thames Valley SAC club house at Palmer Park.
As affiliate members of TVSAC, The Diving Club members benefit from access to a number of TVSAC facilities, such as air fills (which can be done on a club night) and access to dive spaces (where not filled by RBSAC club members).
The club aims to run a number of specific events during the year, such as a summer BBQ, Christmas party, guest speakers and a photo competition
