About the Heinke Trophy

The Heinke Trophy is the Club's premier award. It was donated to the BSAC in 1958 by the old established British diving firm of Heinke, which had been making high quality hard-hat diving equipment for many years and had then developed its own special range of diving apparatus.

Although the Company was later taken over by Siebe-Gorman, some of its original products continued to be made and were available from Collins and Chambers....

The Heinke Trophy for 2013 has been awarded to Oxford BSAC.

In BSAC’s Diamond anniversary year, Oxford have become the 51st branch to receive the prestigious award, annually presented to the club judged to have done the most to further the interests of its members and of BSAC.Heinke 2013 winners Oxford BSAC

Oxford BSAC stood out amongst other applicants for the way the whole club was involved in compiling its application, a report which clearly highlighted what was considered by the judges to be some significant achievements. These included the club’s purchase of its own hardboat, ‘Endeavour’ and HP compressor and the integration of a vibrant snorkelling and try dive programme.

Phil Harrison, Heinke Adjudicator, congratulated Oxford on their achievement.

“As winners of the 2013 trophy, Oxford BSAC are fantastic example of members working together to create a club environment in which diverse range of diving and snorkelling activity can thrive. In BSAC’s 60th year, Oxford should be proud of their achievements which I hope will encourage other clubs follow. I would like to encourage all branches to consider entering for 2014 Heinke Award.”

Oxford BSAC Branch Officer Andy Pickering said the club was delighted by the news. “This really shows what a branch can do if it gets motivated and works together. I hope this award continues the momentum and moves the club to even greater things.”

The achievements of Abu Dhabi SAC were also acknowledged by the Heinke Trophy 2013 panel and the club will now receive a Certificate of Commendation.

The Heinke Trophy 2013 will be formally presented to Oxford BSAC at the BSAC Diving Conference, to be held at NEC Birmingham on Saturday, 26th October.
