Our Sporting and Social Activities
Here at Phuket Dragons our prime drive always has been and always will be that of a Dragonboat Club but we do love to have fun outside of the boat. Here are some examples as what our great bunch of people get up to...
In the past we have held Fun Days on our beautiful beach, Laem Ka in Rawai (Southern Phuket) and intend continuing to do so for our members and general public alike. With Beach volleyball competitions, Boules (Petanque) Challenge, our local Zumba group putting on a show of their particular brand of 'dancercise' even letting our more adventurous members join in. An all day BBQ and accompanying refreshments and of course... we race our dragonboats!
Our monthly quiz night is famous, or perhaps infamous in the South of the Island. Every last Thursday of the month come along and pit your wits against our quizmasters, we regularly attract at least 40 players making it one of the best attended of many quizzes on Phuket. Starting at around 8.00pm until around 11.00pm in the Dragon's 'Clubhouse' - The White Hart on Viset Rd, Rawai. Wide ranging questions, music rounds and general mayhem, with great food at half time, all for just 100 baht per player. All in aid of the Club funds to enable us to maintain our boats and equipment. A night not to be missed!
Beach Clean Ups
In order to 'do our bit' for the local community and ecology we regularly organise a clean up patrol to clean up our local beach of the rubbish dropped daily by tourists and washed ashore from elsewhere, we generally do this before a paddle and make sure the litter is properly disposed of.
Because our group consists of people from all different walks of life there are many activities they introduce to us, below you will find a list of examples and how you can get involved:
We have among our ranks a fair few both professional and amateur divers who can either teach you to dive, buddy with you or organise dive trips.
Zumba is an excercise style that has taken off globally and Phuke is no exception, we can point you in the direction of the local classes or even organise special club events with the zumba girls
Cycling, Swimming Marathons, Fun Runs:
Again, some of our members are involved in the Tri-Athlon scene and can advise and introduce you into the right circles to get the blood coursing through your veins!
Charity and Club Fundraising Events
In the past we have held raffles, auctions, organised collection points for much needed supplies, bake offs, book sales to boost club funds and help local charities.
