About Us

General information.

The Bicester Sub-Aqua Club is a family-friendly Diving and Social Club. We meet once a week at the Bicester and Ploughley Sports Center Cafe, Queens Avenue, Bicester, Oxfordshire. Informal meetings are on Tuesday nights from 8 – 10 p.m. We have exclusive use of the pool on a fortnightly basis from 9 – 10.15p.m.  and use it for try-dives, kit checks, training and swimming.  Access to the Sports Centre Cafe is free as a member of the Bicester Sub-Aqua Club and use of the pool is free on the nights we have it booked.

Diving.

We have a Dive Diary that is available on this website for you to view. Please Follow the link Dive Diary. We hope to run at least one UK trip a month over the summer period, plus one or two warm-water trips. Dives are a mix of shore and chartered hard boat, as well as sheltered dive sites for training and kit checks. We also have our own compressor at the Sports Centre for air refills. Sadly we are unable to do Nitrox fills at the moment.

Organisation.

Being in the middle of the country may be seen as not the best place for having a dive club, but it does mean we are only 70 miles from the coast in most directions! It is a pretty informal club and we accept divers with other agency qualifications such as PADI or SSI (please see the Crossover page for details of the qualification equivalents). We welcome all age ranges and are family-friendly.

If you come along to the Sports Centre on a Tuesday evening, ask for any of the committee members. They will be more than happy to provide you with information about the club, its activities, and diving.
