The club has a classroom and bar for teaching theory lessons and general socialising. We hire the swimming pool at Pingles Leisure Centre in Nuneaton every fortnight through-out the year for sheltered water training. This is also available free of charge for all members for skills practice, testing new kit or swimming.
We have a fully equipped compressor room with a high capacity breathing air compressor, booster pump, and bank cylinders for air, oxygen and helium. This may sound complicated if you are currently a non-diver! It means we can provide breathing air for going diving at low cost to club members! For more advanced divers we can also provide different breathing gases, called nitrox and trimix.
Breathing gas quality is tested regularly for oil, water, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, and we have a Divesoft helium/oxygen analyser to ensure your gas blend is accurate. (Note, we are unable to supply diving gas to non-members.)

We have invested over £20,000 in equipment since 2021 and are one of the best equipped diving clubs in the region.
Again, if you are a non-diver or new to diving don’t worry too much about this. We can supply all the equipment you need. Although you may choose to buy your own equipment over time, you don’t have to.

The club has six sets of Halcyon Eclipse backplate and wing (BP&W) buoyancy compensators (BCs) and regulators for single cylinder diving, in addition to tens sets of traditional jacket-style BCs. We have a Halcyon Evolve twinset BP&W system. We are fully equipped with cylinders of 7, 10, 12 and 15 litre capacity, masks, fins, snorkels, weights, dive computers, compasses and delayed surface marker buoys (DSMBs).
For rescue and first air training we have a waterproof fully-body manikin, and five resus manikins, each with a training automated external defibrillator (AED) and pocket mask.
Other safety equipment includes a first aid kit and an oxygen administration kit.
To support project and adventurous diving we have a Paralenz dive camera system with video lights, a shotline strobe, datum lines, waterproof tape measures and wetnotes.
