Equipment Tests – Crystal Palace 2016


2016 Equipment tests will take place in February this year at Crystal Palace in the High Diving Pool.

Dates available are 4th 18th and 25th February. Contact Jackie of Justin to book your slot.

You will need your FULL kit. Everything you would usually dive in the sea with!

This is to make sure everything works as it should & to practice controlled buoyant lifts, sharing, dsmb deployment and any other skills that need fine tuning.

Crystal Palace Pool


The Bridge swimming pool will be closed for refurbishment from 12th October 2015 until early 2016.

As a consequence we have had to find a temporary pool for training!

We will now train at Crystal Palace Pool until the Bridge re-opens.

THURSDAYS  meet 8pm

(Pool time 8.30 till 9.30pm)


To find the pool enter the National Sports Centre from Anerley Hill.SE19 2BB. At the first junction turn right – do not go to the main entrance of the Centre!

Go straight across the next junction. (sometimes has restricted access and looks closed)

Continue past the Sports stadium on your left as far as you can go!

This is the back entrance to the Pool.

Please contact Jeremy, Jackie or any member of the committee if you need directions.

Please check the location marker on the Map below

Barry and Jeremy at Stoney Cove

In June Barry and Jeremy completed the Advanced Diver Diver Rescue Skills courses AO1 and AO2 at Stoney Cove under the tuition of Marg Baldwin. Skills included AS ascents from 20m, controlled buoyant lifts from 20m, tows and rescue management. Our thanks to the volunteers who allowed themselves to be towed while being given proper mouth to nose rescue breaths.
