SALFORD RED DEVILS TO COMPETE IN UK CHINESE DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL

by | Apr 18, 2024

We are excited to reveal Salford Red Devils will be competing at the UK Dragon Boat Festival.

Taking place at Media City & The Quays, we will be entering a team for the race on the 8th June.

Dragon Boat Race is a team paddling sport of dragon boat racing, and is not a competition oriented event; with any man and woman able to enter the race with no experience required. Each team has ten paddlers, one drummer and one steersman who is assigned by event organiser.

UK Chinese Dragon Boat Festival (CDBF) is one of the most high profile events organised by the Xinhua Chinese Association (XCA).

With support from local councils, communities and organisations, and Consulate-General of the People’s Republic of China in Manchester, the Festival has been a fast growing event that has included amateur team dragon boat racing, diversity of culture show and presentations, and tastes of authentic food since it was first held in June 2012 at MediaCityUK, Salford, Greater Manchester.
