Contact the Bristol Empire Dragons
If you think you might be interested in giving Dragon Boating a try then use the form below to contact us. We are a very welcoming team and offer your first training session for free. All you need is to wear sensible clothing & trainers – stuff you don’t mind getting wet – no jeans or hoodies and be able to swim 50m in light clothing (or notify us if you can’t).
Training takes place on Thursdays at 6.30pm and on Sundays at 8.30am. During the winter months (Oct-March) training is only on Sundays due to limited hours of daylight. The club’s 10 man training and 20 man racing dragon boats are stored on site along with outrigger kayaks for individual training.
The team train on the River Avon in Saltford, Bristol, BS31 3JS.
Directions from Bristol
Follow the A4 to Bath. Towards the end of Saltford there is hill which you drive down. At the bottom there is a left turn to the Marina. Don’t turn left there! Follow the A4 a bit further and turn left after about 100 yards – there is a field on the left behind a stone wall. You may park in the field or follow the track to the boathouse. Bristol Empire Dragons are on the far left in the small hut.
Directions from Bath
Join the A4 to Bristol. Just when you enter Saltford there is a garage on the left. The club is a little further on (less than 100 yards) on the right. From there follow the instructions above.
If you require more details, please do not hesitate to contact us.
