Happy New Year!

We’d like to wish all our Members, Volunteers, Trustees and Supporters a very Happy New Year.
In true Dragons style 2016 has been non-stop, and we’ve no doubt that the next 12 months are sure to bring just as much excitement, fun and success for the Dragons Family!
Here are some snaps to look back and smile at, see you all back on the court very soon!

Drum Roll Please!

Six weeks have passed since the fantastic spectacle that was #DragonsBall16 and we can now reveal an awesome £7000 was raised on the night!

How amazing is that!

Huge thanks to everyone who took part in organising the event, to the brilliant band, our wonderful sponsors Gowrie Care, and of course to each and every one of you who helped us raise such a whopping amount!

DDWSC is a completely volunteer powered charity; we’re run by members for members, so you know that every penny will go back into the club, ensuring we can continue to deliver active wheelchair sporting opportunities to people from all across Tayside.

We’re overwhelmed by this generosity, but as always there’s no time to sit back because there’s always something going on to keep us busy!

This weekend we have athletes at national selection events, athletics meetings and British Wheelchair Basketball Junior League, not to mention our regular Tennis training this afternoon – all made possible because of supporters like you!

So once again, Thank You from the entire Dragons Family!

Christmas 2016 Dates

The club will close for Christmas on Saturday 17th December and will re-commence in the New Year on Wednesday 11th January 2017.

That’s a long time to be off the court so it would be great to see a top turnout for the sessions between now and then; the more work you put in the more mince pies you can scoff whilst on holiday!

Soroptomists International

Our chairperson Elizabeth Ferris was along to speak to the Dundee Soroptomist International meeting tonight.

At the end of the talk Elizabeth was most pleased to be presented with a generous donation of £562 by SI President Fiona Bullions to take back to Dragons HQ.

It’s always wonderful to hear that local groups have chosen to support us; the SI ladies put on a fantastic quiz night to raise these funds, and we’re so grateful to them for their time and hard work!
