Swadlincote Sub Aqua Club

Swadlincote Sub Aqua Club (SSAC), BSAC num. 1280 has beenIMG_4153 running for over 30 years. It is both enthusiastic and welcoming with an emphasis on the BSAC mantra of ‘Dive with Friends’.

The club has a diverse mix of skills, experience and interests from Ocean Diver through to Advanced Diver on both Open circuit (SCUBA) and Closed Circuit (Re-breathers).

Although perhaps the UK’s Dive Club furthest from the coast (approximately 4 miles from the Ordnance Surveys ‘most land locked area of the country’), the club regularly organises weekends away or day trips to the coast for shore dives, charters and dive taxis. As well as closer excursions to nearby quarry’s such as Stoney Cove and Dosthill. The club also has its own RHIB and a number of Boat Handlers and Diver Coxwains.

SSAC are happy to welcome new members who are looking to IMG_3173take the first steps into the world of sub aqua and equally experienced divers who may have taken some time out and are looking to get back into the sport or those from other agencies who are looking for like-minded people to get in the water with.

Weekly meets are held on Tuesday evenings for an hour from 20.15 at Ashby School Pool, for a mixture of training, kit familiarisation, fitness, free diving and octo-push.
