Greetings

Happy New Year and welcome to the Newcastle Hunter Dragon Boat Club.

Founded in 2000, the Club has 3 squads consisting of energetic, enthusiastic people who come together from all walks of life and ages to take up the challenge and enjoy the dynamic sport, plus it’s a great way to get fit.

On the water we work hard but all work and no play is not ideal, hence we also enjoy each other’s company off the water. There are regular social activities and events in which members enjoy the company of each other and build everlasting friendships.

So what’s holding you back? Come on – give Dragon Boating a go and come paddling with us.
