PERSHORE PHOENIX DRAGONBOAT CLUB
FUN, FRIENDSHIP AND FITNESS
Dragonboating is a fun, social and competitive sport. It's an exciting and rewarding way to get fit, maybe lose weight, have fun and make new friends (and of course win some bling (trophies)).
PERSHORE PHOENIX is affiliated to the British Dragon Boat Racing Association - look on their website for us, we're there as "Pershore Phoenix" :-). We race in the National Standard League.
Dragon Boating is a sport that welcomes men and women of any age as long as it's over 12 and tries to cater for all abilities.
While we race in the National Standard league you don't have to race, you can train with us and see how it goes. Not everyone races.
We travel to events in various part of the UK and sometimes beyond; for example through the canals of Venice in the annual Vogalonga Festival, on the seine in Paris with the help of Thames Dragons in La TraverSeine, on the Thames as part of the Henley Winter Series (look for Winter series) as well as many times on our home river, the Worcestershire Avon.
We have BBQs, social events and basically - a good time. Both in the boat and on the land.
We meet every Sunday morning and, in Summer, on Wednesday evenings on the river Avon, we have been spotted in coffee and cake outlets, pubs and the like too.
We love our sport and we love to hone our skills and fitness levels to beat our fellow dragon boat teams in the league. We like to win but don't beat ourselves up if we don't . . . we'll train more and try harder next time . . . OK . . . we like to win!
WE WOULD LOVE YOU TO JOIN US.
