ROWERS are being invited to sign up to the Pershore Phoenix Charity Dragon Boat Race Day being held on Sunday, September 7, on the River Avon at Pershore.

The Phoenix Dragon Boat club is hoping to as many teams as possible enter the race as the event has been teamed up with Race The Dragon professional events organisers to ensure maximum racing excitement for all teams on the day.

Their expertise means rowers and racers can look forward to a great programme.

The club is also offering pre-event training to give every prospective paddler plenty of chances to have a go.

These sessions will take place on Thursday evenings in May and June at the Arden Sailing Club, Defford, near Pershore.
