In IWCA there are more than 10 different types of groups meeting once/twice a month or weekly sharing an ACTIVITY or a hobby. When a group gets too large, the Club will plan a second or a third.
Mostly there is no fee, but only costs to share.

We are proud to offer you the following Club Activity groups:

  • Book discussion: Once a month this group meets and discusses a book.
  • Cinema: once a month we choose a movie worth seeing, all genres.
  • Conversation Groups
    • English
    • French
    • German
    • Other languages can be added in future.
  • Culturalia: always open to new members, registration first come first serve, limited groups of 15
  • Cuisine: There are several cuisine groups at the moment, all consisting of about 5 to
    8 ladies. Each group meets once a month, but they differ in organisation, date,
    time, place and how to prepare the meal.
  • Dine Out: enjoy an evening meal with your fellow members and discover some of our many restaurants in and around Antwerp.
  • Garden and Garden visits: There are 2 large groups meeting monthly. By bus or by
    car-pooling they enjoy a trip and guidance to an interesting garden, a flower
    show, an exhibition or a garden centre. Generally a small lunch or snack will be
    included. Costs are shared.
  • Mah-Jong: Twice a month ladies meet and enjoy playing this fascinating game (2 groups).
  • Walking:  A group of ladies assemble to have a walk in the park and woods of Brasschaat and Schoten.
  • Yoga: Once a week this group of ladies practises Yoga in Brasschaat. There is a fee to be paid.
