Waldringfield Sailing Club is an active sailing club on the River Deben on the east coast of England. It was formed in 1921 and now has a membership of some 700 of whom around 80 live in the village. We race a variety of dinghy classes as well as having an active yacht cruising membership.
(W&D BC) is a well established and respected Federation Bowls Club. The club took over the unused and overgrown bowls green at Ransomes in 2016, after it lost its own green in 2000 for the building of a new village hall and meant it had to rent various spaces across the county.
The club has made efforts to attract increased local membership by running taster and coaching sessions, and by offering the community chance to ‘have a go’ at the opening of Ransomes Pavilion in May 2017. As a result, the club has been pleased to see substantial interest in bowling from local residents.
