We pride ourselves on offering high quality events and second to none customer service. Here is a selection of feedback from our customers:

"The Hampshire Scout Jamboree at Buddens Scout Centre in Dorset gave the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and leaders the opportunity to try out a number of high octane activities, including dragon boat racing. Dragon boating was voted the favourite activity and great fun was had by all. The Beavers specifically enjoyed the challenge of working as a team to propel their boats forward ably assisted by their mascot Chip! We would like to praise the Dragon Boat Events team for their professional, encouraging and fun approach which maximised everyone’s enjoyment, whilst also ensuring the safety of everyone who took part."

Gareth Cairns of Hampshire Scouts

“Congratulations and well done for a very well organised event at Fairlop Water yesterday. Your staff were not only highly professional and well organised but also approachable and extremely helpful. The event ran smoothly, mainly because the preparation was so sound. All the boats and equipment were faultless, and all your team were well trained and very capable. Thank you so much for a very enjoyable and safe experience.”

Squadron Leader Roy Arnold MBE, Chairman 48F Squadron ATC

“We would like to thank you and all your team for the excellent arrangements on the day. Having done this competition three times I would offer that Dragon Boat Events Ltd is by far the most organised, efficient and capable team.”

Mark Whittle, BID Marketing & Events Manager, NWL Chamber of Commerce

“This weekend I tried dragon boat racing for the first time and it was so much fun, I thoroughly recommend it to anyone. However, I especially recommend it to businesses who are struggling to think of what to do at their next team event as it was a great lesson in the importance of teamwork. I knew just three people on my team of 17 before we started. By the end of the day we were all hugging each other like old friends and congratulating each other on a job well done. We didn’t win, we weren’t even in the finals, but we had all worked together and really improved throughout the day and that’s worth celebrating.”

Vikki Todd, Director at Striped Leopard Accountancy

"Thank you very much for making our team have the most fantastic day out. Great team building, we certainly all pulled together! Your guys were fantastic! Thank you all."

Janet Armstrong, Armstrong Waste Management Ltd

“The Rotary Club of York has relied on Dragon Boat Events Ltd for its highly successful Annual Dragon Boat Challenge (raising over £750,000 for charitable causes)  since we started in 2003.  The enthusiastic support of Roger Irwin, their MD, was a great help in getting the first year's event off the ground and Dragon Boat Events has continued to provide a most friendly and professional service to us in York ever since."

Steve Burton of The Rotary Club of York

“We have been fortunate to have used Dragon Boat Events Ltd continuously at Sherborne Castle Country Fair over the last 8 years and through them have always enjoyed competitive dragon boat racing for up to 30 teams as one of the many events on offer at the fair. They bring an excellent balance of competitive fun without compromising safety, making use of quality people to organise the racing and to helm their boats. They do it all very well.

We view our dragon boat racing as a key attraction at our event and hope to continue in partnership with Dragon Boat Events for many years to come."

Nick Robinson of Sherborne Castle Country Fair

“We’ve been working with Roger and his team for 17 years now, and they have delivered a perfect event for us, without fail, every time.  This means a lot to us, as with a 2-day festival and 100 teams participating, we have enough to keep us busy on the day without worrying about the boats.  Fortunately Dragon Boat Events are the most professional team out there, and we are very happy to have been associated with them for so long.”

Kevin Millington, Funraisers

"We have been working with Dragon Boat Events for 14 years now, and their staff efficiently handle all the aspects of the team training and racing as well as providing the running commentary throughout the day. Our first event had just 15 teams, but over the years this has grown and now regularly has 52 teams participating in what has become a major event in the Kingston upon Thames calendar, and raising over £50k each year for local charities."

Keith Maund, Rotary Club of Kingston Upon Thames

"Great team, great experience! Everyone loved it!"

Jamie Diment, Chillisauce

"Since 1997, Dragon Boat Events have successfully run our annual London Rotary District 1130 Dragon Boat Festival. They have always given us outstanding support and delivered exceptional events which have enabled us to raise a lot of money for many worthwhile causes and given all concerned enormous enjoyment.  It has been so successful that Rotary Clubs all over Gt Britain have added Dragon Boat Racing in their annual calendar. We would not hesitate to recommend their services."

Tony Sharma, The Rotary Club of Tower Hamlets
