Corporate Dragon Boat Racing Events

The ultimate team building experience

Create memories that bond, ignite performance or just have a laugh with colleagues – whatever your objectives, we have the perfect solution for your team’s event.

Based on ancient chinese tradition from some 2,000 years ago, dragon boat racing has become one of the fastest growing corporate sports in the UK and worldwide. This unique sport is exciting, adrenalin pumping, and beware – highly addictive! Our team building events offer a unique opportunity to provide you and your collegues with a shared groundbreaking experience. What better way to do this than getting your staff out of the office, in a highly competitive, adrenalin pumping team or company activity.

Our dragon boat events provide the perfect opportunity to escape the office and boost morale whilst encouraging key abilities essential in a work environment including employee teamwork and engagement, communication and productivity.
