Netherton Reservoir and Clubhouse
Our weekly Club dives take place at Netherton Reservoir, just off Highbridge Road in Netherton, where we have access to the 15m-deep reservoir. The ‘Rezza’, as it is affectionately known, has an underwater rope course so that divers can find their way around the various ‘attractions’, including several training platforms.
The onsite Clubhouse has a fully-kitted out kitchen with fridge, oven, sink, kettle and crockery meaning that you are never without a cup of something warm when you’ve finished a dive on a Saturday morning – much appreciated in the depths of winter, we can assure you! We also have a Club BBQ that we are more than happy to get fired up so that everyone is well fed!
The Clubhouse has a fully-licensed and stocked bar offering soft and alcoholic beverages at very reasonable prices, which we open every Thursday evening from 8.30pm and during most of our social events.
Next to the Clubhouse we have heated male, female and wheelchair-friendly changing rooms, toilets and showers available, and also a large classroom to use for training courses and meetings.
Free parking is available water-side but we ask members to park considerately, being mindful of emergency access as it can get quite busy at times.
We have our own onsite air compressor in the Club garage so that trained compressor operators can use this to fill cylinders.
You can purchase air fills on a one-off basis (£2.50) or alternatively buy a 10-fill card for £20.
We also offer O2 clean fills (free) and Nitrox (extra cost) to those with O2 clean equipment and the relevant qualifications.
We have an Excel RIB that we use at the Reservoir as a safety boat. Members with an RYA Powerboat Level 2 qualification are also permitted to drive it.
