henley dragon boat Racing

Welcome to
henley dragons

We are currently National Champions having triumphed at the National Championships in Nottingham in September 2019.  We have some of the top coaches in the country, state of the art training facilities and all of this is based in the Eyot Centre, Henley-On-Thames.

We train twice a week (Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings) and race throughout the year in a number of competitions.  We compete in the British Dragon Boat Association  (BDA) League across the country.


Why not give this exciting sport a try…come and join us!! You may even get an opportunity to  join our elites and represent Great Britain in the next World Championships!
