Please note that this page is very much in its infancy, so all additions and amendments to fill in the gaps will be gratefully received. Club gradings are nominal, mostly with thanks to the club organisers themselves, and are purely to give visiting players an idea of the standard of game they might expect to find at the club in question. I want them to be accurate, so please mail me if you disagree with any of the gradings. However, top-flight players should please note that they will always be made most welcome at the "lower grade" clubs, and that any expertise passed on to those clubs can only benefit the sport as a whole, in all of the countries in which it is played.

Tuesdays are beginner or novice nights, and Wednesdays are Skills nights, where we practice team skills and drills. Mondays and Thursdays are advanced nights. Beginners and novices are not encouraged to play, unless they have played a sufficient amount of Tuesday night sessions to feel comfortable enough to play on these nights.

We also play on Saturday afternoons from 4:30 to 6:00 PM at the Plunge, on the second and fourth Saturday of the month (as of this writing, it may become every Saturday, except the first Saturday of the month).

We also play at a different pool, the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center (JCC), located at 4138 Executive Drive, in La Jolla, on the first Saturday of the month, from 9:00 to 11:00 AM.

Our club meetings are held every month, generally on the first Saturday of the month, at a member’s home. It starts at 7 PM, and the club buys the food and drinks.

After Plunge pool sessions, we usually go to Coaster’s Saloon, to relax and talk about the session, as well as other fun and interesting topics. After the JCC sessions, we head over to La Salsa, a mexican outdoor restaurant to eat and drink after hockey.

Beginners are free for the first time, and the fees are $4 per session thereafter. Club membership is only $10 per year and the club play fees are only $3 per session. Membership entitles you to get a club bumper sticker and a newsletter and a 10% discount at Sport Chalet for dive gear, along with the reduced play fees.
