The Club

The Club has a long history stretching back over 50 years, and with a primary purpose to act as the vehicle allowing members to compete in Club, Regional, National & International Diving Competitions. It is therefore distinct from Diver Training, which is now provided by Active Luton under the leadership of their Diving Development Officer. A copy of the club constitution can be found here.

As a registered Community Amateur Sports Club we are open to people of all ethnicities, nationalities, sexual orientations, religions or beliefs, sexes, ages and ability. The club is funded through a combination of Club Fees, Fund Raising and Donations. This is channelled back into the club to subsidise the cost of events. The club is run by a committee of volunteers who meet regularly throughout the year.

Luton Diving Club is committed to Safeguarding and Child Welfare. We believe that all divers should have fun and enjoy taking part in club activities and should do so in an environment which keeps them healthy & safe from harm. To this end the welfare of our divers is and must always be paramount. In Sept 2012, the ASA produced a document called Wavepower 2012-2015 which sets out the rules, regulations and guidelines for the safety and welfare of all participants in aquatic sports. Luton Diving Club has adopted this document in full. A copy of the club’s safeguarding policy statement can be found here.

If you would like to know more or have a specific concern, our Welfare Officer (see above) will be only too happy to assist.
