Corporate Dragon Boat Racing in Nottingham – Nottingham Rowing Club

Venue and Facilities

With fantastic views of Trent Bridge and easy access to the River Trent, Nottingham Rowing Club is ideally located for corporate and charity dragon boat racing events in Nottingham.

For clients looking for something out of the ordinary, there are two club houses, the Brit Club is built into a cave and next door the Boat Club has a fascinating history of hosting live music events. In the ’60s and ’70s the rowing club hosted some of the world’s biggest artists and bands including U2, The Sex Pistols and even the mighty Led Zeppelin!

Located in West Bridgford, clients will find themselves surrounded by sporting history. Next door to the famous City Ground, home to Nottingham Forest FC, you can also see Meadow Lane, home of Notts County FC and get a feel for the fierce rivalry that will ensue when you race your colleagues in our ornate Chinese dragon boats! If cricket is more your game, the famous Trent Bridge cricket ground is just a stone’s throw away.

The fully equipped kitchen allows food to be freshly made by the in-house caterers with plenty of choice available whether you’re looking for finger food or a more extensive BBQ.

Getting There

The venue is located on the River Trent in the heart of Nottingham which is easily accessible via the M1 or A1 from all parts of the country. The Rowing Club is also a short walk from Nottingham City Centre and the train station.


Just up the river from Nottingham Rowing Club is the site of the Riverside Festival at Victoria Embankment where Gable Events host an annual dragon boat racing event for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People attracting over 40 teams. Nottingham Rowing Club is also the venue for a dragon boat challenge between the five East Midlands police forces and for recruitment specialists Michael Page. Gable Events organised an overnight stay and meeting for 60 delegates from the company at the city’s Jury’s Inn before making their way to the rowing club for dragon boat racing, bbq and drinks. Dragon boat racing was the perfect team building event to lift spirits and motivate the group and Nottingham Rowing Club was an easy choice to host it because of its proximity to the city centre, great facilities, lovely bbq food and spectacular views along the river.
