St Albans Sub Aqua Club (SASAC) is a water sports club in the city’s heart, providing facilities for scuba diving, snorkelling, underwater hockey and swimming,

Based at the Cottonmill Swimming Pool, the club was established over 50 years ago as a dive club and a branch of the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC). It later became a branch of the British Octopush Association (BOA) and in recent years, after refurbishing the swimming pool, has become a popular venue for those wishing to swim in an outdoor pool.

We are a not-for-profit members only club, run by the members for the members. We are not open to the public but on occasions the premises and the pool is hired out to other local community groups.

We offer several ways to participate and enjoy the club:

  • Scuba Diving
  • Snorkelling (another way to see the underwater world!)
  • Underwater Hockey (aka octopush) takes place for adults on Wednesday & for juniors on Thursday at Westminster Lodge swimming pool
  • Swimming (the club’s outdoor pool is available to members only, throughout the year)
  • Club Social events and parties

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 a wealth of knowledge. Dive trips are organised regularly throughout the year, mostly April – October.

We welcome divers from various other organisations, e.g. PADI – simply join us and come diving. Should you wish to progress your training, a crossover course to BSAC is easy.

There are a few ways you can get in contact with us, you can email us here, message us on Facebook or Twitter or you can come visit us on a Wednesday evening. We have our own clubhouse with an open air pool, compressor, lecture room, booster pump, kit hire and to top it off, […]
