ALTEA TEAM: First division hopes for Palma specialists Photo credit: Altea town hall

ALTEA’S Pilota team has reached the finals of the 28th Palma League, a version of the Valencian Ballgame. 
This will be held inland Tibi where they will be competing for the Diputacion de Alicante Trophy donated by the provincial council. 
“We are expecting a very hard-fought game,” instructor Jaume Morales, an ex-professional Pilota player, said beforehand. 
A win by the Altea team would mean an “enormously satisfying” ascent to the Palma League’s first division, he added.
