Match Section

RDAA has an established match/ competition section with approximately 23 matches and 3 open matches held each year across our Lakes and Rivers with cups and trophies for the winners, along with cash spot prizes for the secret weight. 

All levels are welcome to join and costs only an additional £10 p/a. Success of the competition section is due to the no-clique atmosphere and diverse age group from 14-72 – it’s serious, but fun as well.

New members are always welcome.

Any queries, new member interest or for even more info contact the Match Secretary: Steve Martin - info can be found on our matches page.
