Huge Congratulations to Gemma Lumsdaine who tonight took the 2016 Sports Personality of the Year for People with a Disability award at the Angus Sports Awards.
It’s been a glittering few weeks for Gemma who last month took the Young Volunteer of the Year title at the Dundee Sports Awards. The fact she’s been recognised at both ceremonies is testament to her hard work and never ending commitment to wheelchair sports.
Well done Gemma, we’re all super proud!
We hosted the first of this year’s Scotland Wheelchair Rugby League Development Days today. Everyone worked hard and had fun, don’t worry if you missed it though, the next one will again be here in Dundee on 18th March, see you there!
Brilliant news to report from tonight’s Leisure & Culture Dundee, Dundee Sports Awards!
Congratulations to Gemma Lumsdaine and Rhys Colliar who bring silverware back to the club from The Caird Hall for the third year running.
Fantastic achievements for both players; Gemma takes home the much deserved Young Volunteer of The Year Award and Rhys ensures The Dundee City Disability Sport Jenny Wood Allen Award stays in the hands of a Dragon for yet another year.
Here they are pictured with the rest of tonight’s award winners. Well done to both!

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!
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!
