You will be pleased to know that we plan to re-start dancing at Wimbledon Reels from Tuesday 7 September 2021.
Because of the recent fluctuation in Covid case numbers and the danger of new variants, we will have to be cautious at first.
Therefore in the first four weeks, dancers will be asked to book their attendance and pay in advance to limit numbers in the hall to thirty-two. Details of how to book and pay will be circulated via our e-mail list in in mid August.
Hopefully after that, the situation will have improved and we can go back to normal open sessions. We look forward to welcoming you all back to a fun Autumn of dancing.
Wimbledon Reels is a group of friendly dancing enthusiasts who meet on Tuesday each week (Thursday during the summer) in Wimbledon in south-west London to dance Scottish country dances - reels, jigs and strathspeys. We are committed to the idea that Scottish country dancing should be fun, and we have an experienced team of MCs who walk through and call all our dances so that everyone can join in.
We limit ourselves to a small range of dances, which most of our regulars know well and new members can learn very quickly. We do about 10 dances in an evening, each one followed by a short interval to relax, socialise and enjoy a glass of wine or a soft drink. At the end of the evening, a happy (if perspiring) crowd makes its way to the pub to continue socialising!
We meet every Tuesday (or Thursday during the summer) from 19:30 to 22:00 at Trinity Church Hall, Mansel Road, Wimbledon, London SW19 4AA.

We meet in Trinity Church, Mansel Road, SW19 4AA, a really smart newly refurbished building with a lovely sprung floor that is ideal for dancing. It is close to both Wimbledon Station and Tramlink stops.
