Facilities and equipment


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. We can fill club members’ cylinders to 300 bar with air, nitrox or 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.

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.
