We (St Albans Sub Aqua Club or SASAC) are a water sports club in the heart of the city, providing facilities for scuba diving, swimming, snorkelling and underwater hockey. Based at the Cottonmill Swimming Pool (ex-Lido), the club is now almost 50 years old and has expanded from purely scuba diving to providing training and facilities for various activites.
We are an active branch of BSAC (British Sub Aqua Club) diving association; we have facilities for experienced divers and welcome newcomers. We are a friendly bunch, with our own clubhouse and fantastic instructors. Dive trips are organised regularly throughout the year, mostly April - October.
We welcome divers from a wide range of other organisations, for example: PADI. You can cross straight over to BSAC with no extra costs: simply join up and come diving.
We offer several ways to participate and enjoy the club:
- Scuba Diving
- Snorkelling (another way to see the underwater world!)
- Swimming (the Cottonmill Swimmers use the Clubs outdoor pool, which is available to members only, throughout the year)
- Underwater Hockey (aka octopush which takes place on Weds & Thurs evenings in Westminister Lodge pool)
