The Woodford Wells club was founded way back in 1865 when it was set on the edge of Epping Forest. It is a bit of a hidden gem for those living in the Woodford, Loughton and Chigwell area. As well as offering the opportunity to play six sports and lots of modern facilities Woodford Wells has a relaxed atmosphere and a strong sense of community.
