Pétanque 1 @ Purpose built rinks at Cumbre del Sol

What is Pétanque?

Pétanque (in French) is a form of boules where the goal is to throw metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet or Jack.

The object of the game is to throw your balls – usually with an arched back-spin – so that they land closer to the small object ball (jack) than those of your opponent, or strike and drive the object ball toward your other balls and away from your opponent’s.

The only really essential equipment is a set of steel boules (three minimum). A set costs anywhere from 12 euros upwards from most Chinese shops. However come along and try a game first to see if you want to join the group, and buy your own set after that if you do then decide to join.

Dance Fitness Group (Thursday) @ Restaurante Montevideo, Benitachell
Apr 22 @ 10:00 – 11:00

 

 

Frequency: Weekly:  There are three groups –

  • Monday – 9.45 to 10.30am  (This class is open to members and non members)
  • Monday- 1045 to 11.30 am (This class is essentially for U3A members)
  • Thursday- 10 to 11am  (This class is open to members and non members)

Group Leader: Pam Small

A dance fitness workout (you don’t need a partner), is designed for people who love to dance and want to keep fit, but for a variety of reasons, prefer a lighter intensity, lower impact and perhaps a slower pace.

It combines old-style dance genres such as the Bossa Nova and Foxtrot, to the Flamenco and the Argentine Tango.

The dance steps are easier to follow, enabling more participants to have fun getting fit, while learning classic dances of the ages. The classes are an hour long and  the cost is 5 euros to include coffee after.

From time to time Danceathons and Charity classes are held to raiase money for charity – and have a bit of fun!

Spanish Conversation Intermediate @ Golden Bay
Apr 24 @ 10:30 – 12:00
Group Leader: Sheila ShipsidesA coffee morning with a difference! You need to be familiar with the different Spanish verb tenses and endings, have learnt grammar fairly thoroughly and have a certain amount of vocabulary to be able to participate as we have no teacher – you will find that you learn from some and help others.

We sit at tables of four or less so everyone gets their say. The idea is to practice in a relaxed way what we have already learnt in class. After quite a short time we are finding that we can think more quickly and consequently are becoming more fluent.


If you would like to come along, please email me Sheila Shipsides by email: group-spanish-intermediate@u3amoraira-teulada.org
