Belleville Dragon Boat Club

The Belleville Dragon Boat Club

The Belleville Dragon Boat Club (formerly the Belleville Paddling Club) is one of Belleville's most active sports and recreation clubs.  The BDBC is dedicated to fun, fitness, and team-building, both on and off the water, offering programs for all ages 14+ to seniors, and we provide instruction and training in all areas of dragon boating for all levels of expertise.  Our professional and experienced coaches ensure your safety, fitness and goals are obtained.

Since inception, the Belleville Dragon Boat Club has proudly been a community-based, volunteer run, non-profit organization; we strive to be good citizens of Belleville and the Quinte region and we host several annual events to raise money for our community.  In addition to supporting the Belleville area, we have strong ties to several of our neighbouring dragon boating teams and events.  The BDBC has worked with the Wellington Lions Club and the Cobourg Dragon Boat Club with their dragon boat festivals.  We practice and paddle from Victoria Park on the Bay of Quinte, in the City of Belleville, ON.

2018 Season

Monday, April 30 - Thursday, September 27, 2018

Attention All Paddlers!

The launch of the dragon boat season is just around the corner and we’re looking forward to seeing you again for the 2018 season!

We had hoped to start paddling Monday April 30th but due to the inclement weather the refurbishing of our boats is a couple of days behind. They will be delivered back to us next week and we’ll keep you posted about the first night of paddling.
