Club Facilities and Equipment

Netherton Reservoir and Clubhouse

Our weekly Club dives take place at Netherton Reseroir, 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 to follow around the various underwater ‘attractions’ and several training platforms. Maps are available from the Club garage.

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 to keep our members 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 newly-refurbished male, female and disabled changing rooms, toilets and showers available, and 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.

Air Compressor

We have our own onsite air compressor in the Club garage. Trained compressor operators can use this to fill cylinders.

Air fills can be bought on a one-off basis (£2.50) or you can buy a 10-fill card for £20. O2 clean fills are also available at a slightly higher cost.

Boats

We have two boats in the club, a 4 year old Excel and a 15 year old Delta.

The sea-going Delta RIB is kitted out with VHF Radio, echo sounder, GPS equipment and all the safety equipment associated with small boats.

The smaller Excel boat is used at the Reservoir as a safety boat.
