Red Triangle Bowls Club.JPG

The Red Triangle Bowls Club

Playing bowls is a good way of meeting new people having fun and keeping fit at the same time. Beginners are most welcome. If you are interested in playing bowls please come along and join us, its an enjoyable game for all ages. The Red Triangle Bowls Club (RTBC) plays on a small green behind the Old Vicarage at the end of Crown Lane. We play only friendly matches with local clubs in a warm relaxed atmosphere. Most years we have a very full programme and play two or three arranged matches per week with additional opportunities to play in other club cups and drives.


In these unprecedented times with COVID-19 reducing, but not eradicated, our 2021 season will start in early June. We will have a reduced number of matches and the numbers of players on the green at any one time will need to be restricted. We will also have COVID safe practices in operation at the green to protect players. We hope to have a full season in 2022 if the Government's COVID mitigation strategies have been successful.


 The Red Triangle Bowls Club season starts in early May and ends late September.

This is an exciting new project initiative being championed by the Wickham Market Partnership in conjunction with the UK Men’s Shed Association.  It is currently in the development stage.

What are Men’s Sheds all about?

They are community spaces for men to connect, converse and create. The activities are often similar to those of garden sheds, but for groups of men to enjoy together. They help reduce loneliness and isolation, but most importantly, they’re fun.

Tel: 01394 386795


The dance class is for exercise and fun. Soft shoes and the ability to laugh mandatory!


I have run several dance classes in the Woodbridge area and have orchestrated ceilidh dancing at many local functions and charitable events. Most recently raising funds for the Ipswich Night Shelter.


After several years recovering from serious illness, I am excited to share my love of dancing once more and to enable others to experience the many health benefits, beyond the sheer fun of it, that come with Scottish dancing.


If this class is successful I would like to introduce WALKING DANCE CLASSES in the new year. These are inspired by Scottish Country Dancing and have inclusivity at their core: exercise, fun and the health benefits that come from social dancing. All to great music and appropriate to those who may be physically challenged.


I am an RSCDS qualified teacher.
