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.
