On the ball
THE Calpe U3A Petanca group meets and plays every Sunday afternoon at the new time of 3pm to 5pm.
The pitch is at the far of the Paseo Maritimo, going past Hotel Esmeralda on the La Fossa Beach.
Teams can be composed of between four and 24 players and the first team to reach 15 points is the winner.
“The cost per session is free and after the match, the group normally seeks refreshments at a nearby cafe or bar,” the organisers explained.

The Calpe U3A has 24 groups that include badminton, tennis, paddle tennis, choir, cycling, flower-arranging, papercraft, a discussion group, writing group, men’s dining, ladies’ dining and many more.
Meetings take place on the third Thursday of the month at the Sol Ifach Hotel in Calpe and doors open at 10am for 11am.
