Diving is one of the most exciting sports in the world. It involves leaping and springing into water, while trying to perfect a series of perfect body positions. But it is also very strictly controlled. If you want to learn more, or just discover some fascinating facts about the sport, follow this link to the ASA Diving and British Swimming Diving pages.
Although Kent has a number of pools with diving boards, the number of competitive diving programmes has decreased from the heady days when Hayley Allen of RTW Monson represented the GB in the Olympics in Barcelona (1992) and Atlanta (1996). Crystal Palace Diving Club is producing world class divers in Kent London, but the county is lacking anything near that level in Kent Rural.
Currently there are three diving programmes identified in the Kent Rural area at Maidstone SC, Highgate Diving Club and Tunbridge Wells Sports Centre Diving Club. The County does need someone with vision who can drive forward diving in the whole of Kent, and if you feel that either you or someone you know has the necessary skills to identify and coordinate the individual programmes within the county, then please contact us.
