Who are Purple Warriors?
Purple Warriors is a new dragon boat club, created specifically for serving and retired members of HM Forces who have some form of disability or impairment as a result of their service.
Purple Warriors has been formed to give you the opportunity to take up a new sport, to train (hard!) and then to compete – on equal terms – against club dragon boat crews from around UK (who will probably have no impaired paddlers!).
We believe Purple Warriors is a world-first. However, the gauntlet has also been thrown down to allied nations in the hope that Purple Warriors will have the opportunity to compete against similar impaired military crews from countries such as Australia, USA and Canada.
