Diving Membership

Worcester Divers works on the basis that people join the club and become a member which allows you access to club equipment, to come on club trips and training. Once you are a member, any trip costs are shared between everyone on the trip and all of our instructors are volunteers, so you aren’t paying for their time.

Diving Membership Fees for Worcester Divers come in three parts: Annual Membership Fees, a (one-off) Joining Fee and any Training Materials that you might want.

Annual Membership Fees

Worcester Divers’ have an annual membership fee. Everyone in the club pays this every year, with instructors and students/juniors paying slightly less.
