Visiting rowing club trains in Dimboola

Phoenix Rowing club members from Ballarat, have been staying at the Riverside Holiday Park in Dimboola, while on a four day training camp.

Phoenix Rowing Club co-ordinator Sarah Hawkes said, ”we come here every year and everyone has a great time and it is so good for the bonding of the youngsters.

“This year we have 35 youth ranging from nine to 12 years. We train early in the morning, using the Dimboola rowing club’s facilities and then when it gets hot, we spend the time at the pool cooling off,” Ms Hawkes said.

Members of the club have competed at the Dimboola Regatta with the Wendouree Rowing Club team previously.
