Club Facilities

Our Club House

As a member of East Cheshire Sub Aqua Club you will have access to our purpose built club house, two club boats, compressor (inc nitrox), expedition gear and training equipment.

boathouseDesigned and built in 1990 by its members, the clubhouse contains everything an active diver could wish for. The large boat house holds a 5.5m Ribcraft RIB, a 5.5m Delta RIB (both with efficient and powerful 4 stroke petrol engines).

We are regularly updating our equipment and in 2016 we secured a £10,000 grant for new training equipment (which was spent on regulators and BCDs for our trainees and in 2017 the club spent well over £15,000 on a brand new engine and a new trailer so you can be sure we always strive to have the best facilities available for our members.

Air and O2 Fills

The compressor and large air bank are located inside the boat house and we are equipped to supply Nitrox and Trimix for those qualified. Your annual membership fee entitles you to free air fills with a small additional charge for Nitrox and Trimix to cover the cost of O2 and Helium.


We have a 300bar booster pump that enables us to deliver Nitrox and Trimix Fills as well as managing the Oxygen and Helium in our bank cylinders.

We also have expedition gas cylinders enabling us to take our Trimix and Nitrox facilities on the road so we are able to support technical diving even in remote areas.


Clubhouse and Bar Area

On the first floor of the clubhouse we have a large open area which we can use to provide training or socials, we can comfortably accommodate over 100 people. We also have a bar that sells reasonably priced beer, spirits and soft drinks. On a Thursday evening after the pool we all gather for a few drinks and a snack (often bacon butties or if you are lucky Janice may have baked a cake!).

A 360 degree panorama of this area is shown below. Members can also hire the clubhouse for a small fee for private functions.

Within the clubhouse we also have a trip board where we advertise all our trips and you can sign up for future trips.  You can view the Trip Board here.
