Good friends and great fun at UWC.

A feature of UWC membership is the opportunity to join one of our member-driven interest groups. Some of our groups have been around for decades, while others were created more recently. Many of these groups welcome member guests as well.

Let’s get social

Our social groups focus on coming together to share, talk, and connect.

Bar 54 – Cocktails, snacks and conversation are on tap at Bar 54. We encourage members to bring guests to find out more about UWC.

Out to Lunch – Check out Winnipeg’s new dining hot spots and familiar favourites once a month.

Sunroom – Each week during the months of September to June this group meets solely for the pleasure of each others company.  New, recent and time long members share memories and current news of their lives and family, the club and the world at large. Much of the history of the Club is shared in this way and friendships old and new are reinforced, ensuring the future of the Club. Laughter is guaranteed and no new duties emerge. It is time well spent in relaxing for an afternoon.

Wednesday Group – One of the club’s longest-running groups meets twice a year, sometimes around specific activities or projects.

Get your game on

Bridge – We have three bridge groups: social (no experience required), duplicate, and marathon (a UWC fundraiser that takes place outside of the club).

 “I have been a UWC member since 1997. The activities at Ralph Connor House have taught me new skills and made great memories. I have been involved with the board of directors, several committees and even worked with a small team to publish a book. 54 West Gate is my other home where I can enjoy the company and friendship of many interesting women. UWC has added a whole new dimension to my life.
