About Us

Pershore Phoenix is a dragon boat club with two Racing Teams;  an open team, and a ladies team - the 'Pershore Flyers'. We race in the British National Standard League. We are assiocated to the British Dragon Boat Association.



We accept men and women of all ages from 12 years upwards. You are welcome to join us at any fitness and experience level. If you are a novice on the water, our friendly and knowledgable coaches will help give you all the tools you need to become a confident paddler in no time!

Your first 4 sessions are completely free with no obligation. You will be given all the equipment needed, just wear suitable fitness gear (no jeans or heavy boots) and bring a drink. 

Once you gain your confidence, you may want to race with us, in the UK and overseas. You may be interested in drumming, learning to steer the boat or even paddling with team GB!  We offer development at all levels for all sorts of paddling goals!

We are based in Defford, Pershore (see map below) at Arden Sailing Club where we share the club facilities with Arden Sailing Club. Often both clubs have boats on the water at the same time. 


We paddle for fun, fitness and racing and enjoy the racing and social aspects that come with being part of such a big team!

Off the water we have BBQs, social events and basically, a good time! We pride ourselves on being a family both in the boat and on the land. 

We meet to train every Sunday morning and, in Summer, also on Wednesday evenings at Arden Sailing club (see map below).

We love our sport and we love to hone our skills and fitness to beat our fellow dragon boat teams in the league! We have the ambition to recruit more members and to eventually have a first and second team, as well a junior and senior team!

Pershore Phoenix is totally voluntary; it is a club made up of members who pay a membership fee. We are proud to be a friendly and inclusive club with members of all ages and abilities.

Pershore Phoenix DBC is a member of the BDA (British Dragon Boat Racing Association).
