Ringwood & District

Anglers Association

Welcome to Ringwood & District Angling Association

Ringwood & District Angling Association was formed over 50 years ago, and has grown in strength year on year. With over 2000 members all enjoying over 27 stillwater venues and 60 miles of river bank there's a full range of angling for everyone. We have excellent links with all our local tackle shops were you can become a member or buy a day ticket.

Match Section

We have an established match section run by our match manager Nigel Groom, with approximately 18 matches a year plus 3 open matches too.


The clubs coaching section is run by Chris Holley offering courses to all ages. The club is keen to encourage the youngters to fish and join the club, and Chris regularly runs coaching courses for local schools and clubs etc to introduce youngsters to angling.

Match Section

RDAA has an established match/ competition section with approximately 18 matches and 3 open matches held each year across our Lakes and Rivers with cups and trophies for the winners, along with cash spot prizes for the secret weight. 

All levels are welcome to join and costs only an additional £5 p/a. Success of the competition section is due to the no-clique atmosphere and diverse age group from 14-72 – it’s serious, but fun as well.

New members are always welcome.
