We Are Back!
The welcome return of Diveworld Club Nights.
Scuba is an amazing sport................. can`t imagine much argument there.
We have managed to maintain some diving activity, most of it in the great outdoors, but something has been missing, a vital spark?
Pretty obvious eventually, its been the divers themselves that we have missed. The social aspect of scuba is as vital as the wet bits to give the full, rounded enjoyment factor.
One way we manage to get our diver fix on a regular basis is the Diveworld Club Nights. For a while we feared they could be gone forever due to the uncertainty about Ponds Forge reopening after the lockdown. Delightedly due to a combination of public pressure, SIV management and Sheffield City Council, we ran our first club night for over four months. It was so good to see all the old faces, as well a good few new ones too, welcome back.
We can`t thank the venue enough for the common sense approach they have taken. The new protocols and procedures allow maximum Covid safety while not restricting activities to any degree. Probably the only ammenity missing is changing facilities, a sacrifice we are happy to put up with. It has felt good to be able to work together to achieve a positive situation.
One aspect always stands out for me, how adaptable and sharp our Dive Team are! Congratulations to each one of our amazing pro`s for a seamless club session, you know who you are.
It doesn`t end there of course, we are taking great care to make everyone aware of their personal responsibilities to each other, and all equipment is cleaned, sanitized and stored correctly after each use.
Our next club night at Ponds Forge is on the 9th November. Booking in with us is essential so we can maintain Track & Trace protocols and keep numbers of divers to a manageable level. We also need enough equipment for everyone too. Easily achieved, e-mail or phone to book and join us for your dose of diver interaction (and don`t forget the mermaids).
