Pool sessions are held regularly at Cripps Swimming Pool in the grounds of Northampton General Hospital. The Dive Club meets on a Thursday and Sunday evening after the Club Pool Session. The Pool is crystal clear and is 3 metres deep, ideal for practice (try out that new equipment) and for training. We cannot promise that you will see too many fish, but we can promise you a great time! After the pool session the fun continues in the Restaurant and Bar situated in the same building as the Pool, where great food and cheap drinks are served till late at night. Lots of club members come to these sessions to arrange trips and to meet new friends.
Don't forget that we also do at least two trips to the Red Sea every year and also run regular trips to the coast, mainly at weekends. Click for more information and see our Club Trip and Event Calendar.
The DIVE Northampton Club has been specifically set up to cater for those people who want to keep diving and join in with the many activities we organise throughout the year. The Club is open to Divers from all certification agencies, for example: PADI, BSAC, CMAS, NAUI, SAA, etc.
The pool is open to all Club Members at no charge. If you wish to dive, you will need to come to the shop about an hour and a half before the pool session to organise (and pay for where necessary) any equipment you need. If you intend to use your own equipment, then you can just come straight to the pool, making sure you don't come down to pool-side until after the start time of our session. The pool sessions run on the following times:
