About the Club

The Diving Club was started in the early 90's by DiveStyle and some of the first students, several of who are still members to this day. The Club has developed and grown with a close affiliation with DiveStyle. 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 have a thriving club with nearly two hundred members!. The Diving Club is "multi-agency" and welcomes divers from any of the various certification agencies.

The committee are elected annually at the Autumn AGM and run the club for the benefit of the members. We have two elected Dive Organisers, who organise a wide variety of dives throughout the season, aimed at both newly qualified and 'out-of-practice' divers, as well as more experienced divers. The 'orientation' dives for the newly qualified are intended to provide an enjoyable and stress free way of gaining experience and working your way up to more challenging dives.

Other more challenging dives are arranged for experienced divers. Locations include Dorset, Devon, Cornwall, Wales and many other UK locations. There are usually two or three trips to more exotic locations abroad organised by both The Diving Club and DiveStyle. This gives members a chance to treat themselves to some sun and warm water.

We also have a series of social events throughout the year, which are open to the members and their families. The events range from bowling evenings to dinner dances, barbecues and trips to places of interest to divers.
