THE Ifach-Calpe Basketball Club, the AACC cancer charity and Calpe town hall are promoting basketball for the over 35s.

“This is particularly aimed at women who have been diagnosed with cancer,” the town hall explained.

“It is directed at improving social relations and promoting safe sport in a friendly atmosphere.”


The project includes two weekly training sessions with monitors from the Ifach-Calpe club as well as physiotherapy cover and clothes for training.

The Club, the AACC charity and the town hall also hope in future to organise an event where participants can compete.

More information is available from Calpe town hall or via a WhatsApp to AACC on 638 948 448.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
