Hi my name is Woody I joined Ruislip and Northwood and started to learn to dive in 1979 and have been a member ever since currently I am club Chairman.
My engineering company started make MGE reels and sub-aqua accessories in 1984 in 1998 with Gary a business partner we opened Slough Scuba Store which closed in 2020 (so a fair bit of experience ) and I am always willing to advise on equipment matters whether it’s problems purchase or service I will try my best to help.
If your new to diving or already trained we would love to meet you
I have been diving for 15 years and I am the Diving Officer. I love the water and when the kids left home I decided to try a scuba diving and the rest is history. My partner also dives and we have had many enjoyable trips and holidays with the Club.
Come and dive with us!
I enjoy organising and helping others organise social events for the club.
Regular events are our summer bbq, Christmas meal, bowling and many evenings spent sampling different cuisines in restaurants.
I really believe that the social events are a really important, fun aspect of belonging to the club.
I joined the Club 18 years ago and have made friends and enjoyed the Club diving. So if you are thinking about joining us, then meet me at the pool on a Thursday night and I will introduce you to our members.
I started diving 4 years ago and I soon became hooked .I try and dive at every opportunity possible and I do!
Our club is a great place to learn how to dive and you can progress at your own speed or maybe you might just want to beat my record good luck with that one!
I joined Ruislip and Northwood in 2018 without doubt it was one of the most life altering things I have ever done. I just didnt join a club I joined a group of people that would become some of my closest of friends .
Yes , I was scared to begin with ,but I found diving builds confidence and also helped my mental well being . After my first try dive I just couldn’t wait to have another and I haven’t looked back since .
See Diving Officer for help and advice
My name is Tim Wood, I’m the treasurer of Ruislip and Northwood BSAC. I joined the club in the latter part of 2018 and I’m proud to say one my daughters Fenella , joined with me shortly afterwards. I have for over the past twenty years run T. W. Carriages with my wife Gayle.
Being the father of twin girls the youngest of the two ,along with Gayle are both avid horse woman, but Fen the eldest was most happiest swimming and Kayaking so it was just a natural progression for her to begin to scuba dive.This was not only a step away from my equestrian business, it was something Fen and I could do together and is a complete contrast to
my normal business life.
Since joining the club, myself and my family have housed the club rhib and I was actively involved with the installation of our very own club air compressor and equipment store. I have made many friends and since joining the Ruislip and Northwood Sub Aqua Club, life has been far more interesting and I hope to enjoy many future holidays and dives with my club .
