The History of Clubsub

Where we started and how far our community's come


Clubsub was established in 1996 in Rushden, Northants by Colin & Linda Evans. Colin was a BSAC Instructor and the PADI Staff instructor. Through hard work and long nights they established Clubsub as a small but very high quality training establishment with a small servicing and retail shop.

In 2005 due to a change in circumstances Colin felt he could no longer provide the time and effort to take Clubsub to the next level, and that’s were I came in. I bought Clubsub on the 1st October 2005 with the aim of developing a dive centre in Stoke. I live in Stoke on Trent and always felt there was a need for a Dive centre in Stoke. Using Clubsub Northants as a blue print Clubsub (Stoke) was opened on the 15th July 2006 in Shelton, Stoke on Trent.

Due to the success of Clubsub Stoke over 2006, Clubsub moved in August 2007 to is new larger and more modern premises on Werrington, Stoke on Trent. We have possible the largest selection of new Dive equipment in Staffordshire from the leading manufacturers.
