Ilkeston & Kimberley Sub Aqua Club



IKSAC is one of the oldest diving clubs in the Midlands having been in existence in one form or another since the early 1970’s.

We specialise in diver training within a friendly supportive club environment. We have in excess of 60 members at all levels of qualification. Some new members have yet to progress from the pool whilst some of the older members have been diving for over 30 years. Ages range from the younger ones of teen-age, right through to retirement age (and beyond in some cases).

How we began

The club was formed in 1973 being BSAC branch 592. It used Ilkeston pool as it’s base, which at that time still had the 3 metre diving pool which was useful for diver training. At this time Kimberley Leisure Centre was about to open, and members John Morris and Ray Booth approached the centre to see if it would be possible to use it for training. Permission was granted with the condition that the club changed it’s name to Ilkeston and Kimberley Sub Aqua Club. And so on the 5th October 1974, the day the leisure centre opened, IKSAC was born. We have been based at Kimberley since then.


Whats Happening Now

After nearly 50 Years at Kimberley Leisure Centre, the leisure centre has closed. We have now moved to a new pool at Bramcote Leisure Centre (April 2024). The pool is deeper, wider and longer which is ideal for Scuba training.
