Reading University Sub Aqua Club


Hi folks,

I really enjoyed your lectures during clockdown.

I’m a BSAC Sports Diver looking to complete the theory for the BSAC Twin-set Diver:

My plan is to join friends (around end of Oct. / start of Nov.) for the practical sessions/dives.

Do you know of anyone is planning on running the theory? online or otherwise for this SDC? or even the complete course?

Instructors Oli, Drew and Sqzy have done their refresher dive and are going in on twins next! If you're looking to advance your diving, get in touch and we'll sort you out.

Our scuba diving club is part of the world recognized British Sub Aqua Club. We offer training for all levels of divers from our entry level Ocean Diver course, through to Dive Leader and higher.

Get in touch today!

Operating as usual


With valuable time and effort put in by Sqzy Dave & Oli Hancox, our club RIB, Bungle, was now in a fit state to undergo its first openwater outing in 5 years. Thanks to all that assisted on the trial yesterday in Southampton.

At Reading University Sub Aqua Club, We can offer a wide range of diving from the beginner with our excellent training program through to advanced diving techniques. We also offer a diverse range of diving from inland lakes, the UK shores or even further afield, for instance we have been to Gozo, Croatia and Thailand just to name a few foreign trips.


Hi everyone!

in light of stressful exam season we just wanted to share the benefits of scuba diving on mental health and overall welfare.

According to a study by the University of Sheffield’s Medical School, scuba diving has a positive impact on mental health, improving levels of anxiety, depression and social functioning. These benefits are due to the focus on breathing, causing a calm and meditative state that is beneficial to the mind.

We hope everyone has been alright during this difficult year and we hope to have diving back to normal soon

The club boat is no longer homeless! We've reclaimed our garage on campus 🤩 Here's hoping we get loads of good diving off it this year. But we'll need a whole bunch of help scrubbing the old paint off her and getting her shipshape. Any volunteers???

Great news from NDAC as we start our phased return to club diving and teaching.

We are excited to announce that there will be an initial phased reopening of the National Diving & Activity Centre for Scuba Diving starting from Saturday 31st October.

Initially the centre will be open for Scuba Diving only on Saturdays and Sundays. We will be carefully limiting the numbers on the site and will only be allowing visitors who have pre-booked their Scuba diving online.

The View Cafe Bar, Gas Room and limited Wooden Wigwam accommodation will also be available for scuba diving visitors. The Wooden Wigwams will initially have a minimum of a 2 night stay in place.

Other activities such as the Wire Zip Slide, Atlantis Aqua Park and Giant 3G Swing will remain closed at this stage, but will be reviewed after we've opened for scuba diving.

Scuba Diving entry can be booked online NOW with our new booking system.

Whilst the centre has been closed to the public we have been working hard to implement new procedures throughout the site to protect our visitors and staff. For the Scuba Divers returning to dive with us, please ensure you have read though the latest measures we have in place. For full details and to book, please visit

We value your custom and thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we operate these new procedures and measures. These will be kept under constant review as the Government guidelines are updated.

If you have any specific questions or concerns please email us at [email protected]

We look forward to seeing you in the water soon!


Yo, yo yo!! We gonna be famous, y'all.

RUBSAC are meant to be featuring in next month's SCUBA magazine, but we need some photos. The ones we have on Facebook aren't high enough resolution so we'd need the originals.

If you have any photos of us doing our thing, out and about can you send em to [email protected]

That could be underwater, on the boat, in the pub... wherever! They don't even need to be recent. You'd also get photo credit in the magazine apparently!


Sub Aqua goes sailing! ⛵️
