seen your message on the talk page. The main page has apporved suggestions
how to tag dive shops and centers. For dive clubs I don` been 't see why
club=scuba_diving should not be sufficient. The club page seems to suggest
that club=sport + sport=cycling type tagging should be used for competitive
Not seen a scuba diving competition club for a very long time. Perhaps this
should be added to the summary of the scuba_diving page?

Tag:sport=scuba_diving as divespot has been in use for a long time already


has been approved. So changing divespots to leisure=* is not a good idea at
this point.

I have added the "scuba_diving:divespot=yes" to the summary although it is 
not seen as obligatory in the proposal.
