Structured activities where a shy guy can meet women?

What are some structured activities where I (early 30s, male) can meet women in their 20s/30s? I'm specifically looking for activities that involve an ongoing group with structured interaction between participants, because I'm not good at starting up conversations on my own.

I'm looking for the kind of activity where people necessarily get to know each other -- so e.g. a yoga or drawing class won't do the trick, since it's easy to show up, do your thing and leave without talking to anyone. The ideal would be some kind of class or group that was ongoing (I'm pretty shy so it takes me a while to come out of my shell around new people), non-stressful (I wouldn't be likely to go to e.g. an improv class), small enough that you get to know everyone else but large enough that you'd be likely to meet one or more people you might find interesting, not involving sports or dance, but preferably not purely talk-based either (like a book club). Oh, and fun, too. I know that all sounds very restrictive, but there must be lots of activities of this sort, I'm just not thinking of them. Suggestions welcomed.
