After following various leads for new training locations within DB, we have been forced to concede to Discovery College’s new hire rates. Moving forward we will continue to explore other training options for next season. Unfortunately Covid has eliminated all other viable options for this season so we are forced to train at DC at a huge cost to the club. All of the netball section is overwhelmed by the support we have had from the Pirates and the local community, Thank you! At least we can now get the juniors training on a court, so let’s get back out there.Read More
A long and bumpy season for our stoic dragon boat cohort finally found joy last Sunday, winning first place in our first race of the season as a newly combined team with Lantau Boat Club at the 2021 Kellet Island Cup. The combined team, named the LBC Pirates, drew on experienced ladies, mens and mixed team members from both clubs. The women’s team stormed home to win on the day, with much (socially distanced) celebrating afterwards and big cup to prove it! Kudos to our passionate coach Jo Jones, and stoic steersman David Steed for getting all of us ‘over the line’! Our men’s team made it to the semifinals, so a great result for the day, and a reminder of why we train so hard and have so much fun doing it! New members are always welcome, so please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you are keen to give this crazy sport a try – men and women, all ages, all fitness levels.Read More

After a very long wait, DB Pirates Netball Seniors welcomed their first game of the season this week in their classy new kit, designed locally by one of our own! Featuring a decorative skull motif across the front and back in our club colours of green and black, with a sassy white shoulder. Everyone loved getting back on the court, and although the Black Pearls, featured here, didn’t have a win, they felt winners anyway just getting out and playing after such a long hiatus.
Also featured are the Jolly Rogers, Black Jacks and Swashbucklers. Go Pirates!Read More
