Following the sub aqua session at our Splash Night,
we have received this email.
"Thanks so much for having us at the session on Saturday. As promised - I wanted to send you some information to send out to members (especially those who expressed an interest in diving) and put on your website.
The Rugby Divers Rugby Sub Aqua Club – Rugby's Local Diving Club are part of the British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) and are supporting BSACs Accessibility - diving for all which aims to make diving accessible to anyone with disabilities through training instructors to take people in to the water and support people to realise that diving isn't necessarily out of their grasp. 
We meet at the Queens Diamond Jubilee Centre on Monday nights to do both classroom lectures and pool sessions and would welcome anyone who may be interested to contact us to discuss coming along to a try dive. Anyone who may wish to discuss it further is welcome to contact either myself on (I'm a Diving for All rep) or the clubs chairperson, Dave Lowe on We're very happy to chat and come back to any of your sessions if you feel its helpful.

With very best wishes
