Ballina Dragon Boat Racing Club


Are you looking for a new and exciting team sport and a fabulous way to get and keep fit? Then Ballina Dragon Boat Racing Club may be for you.  

Dragon Boating is one of the fastest growing sports in Australia and the world.  Ballina Dragons are going from strength to strength and have just acquired a brand new state-of-the-art Dragon Boat to accomodate our paddlers, the drummer and sweep!

Our qualified coaches encourage paddlers to find their competitive edge whilst also gaining physical and technical expertise at paddling.  Safety is a key priority for our club and so is competition. We regularly compete at local and interstate regattas. 

We are an inclusive club and cater for all ages and fitness levels. So why not come along and try out, the first five training sessions are free, and all equipment is provided! Once you learn the basics we’ll team you up with an experienced paddler to show you how it’s done on the water.

So come along and give it a go.   No experience is necessary, we will provide you with everything you need: a paddle, life jacket (if required) and instruction. You just need to bring a water bottle, hat and light comfortable clothing as you will get wet!

Our training base is at 16 Tamarind Drive, Ballina,  and training sessions are held every Monday and Thursday nights and Saturday morning. We can accommodate you at any of our sessions as long as you register beforehand.

To attend a training session you will need to contact us to organise a time,
