About Dragonboating & Pershore Phoenix  

Dragonboating is a fun, social and competitive sport

Pershore Phoenix is a dragon boat racing club - we race in the National Standard League. We like the improved fitness, excitment of racing the social side and maybe lose a little weight too - all in a supportive team atmosphere. We are affiliated to the British Dragon Boat Racing Association (the BDA) <-- look on their website for us.

Dragon Boating welcomes people from 12 years of age and tries to cater for all abilities.

At Pershore Phoenix you don't have to race, you can paddle a dragon boat with us, train with us for fun, see how it goes.

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 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 if we can, it's fun!
