U3A CALPE’S Petanca-Boules group is up and running once more.

They meet each Sunday at the petanca pitches at the far end of the Paseo Maritimo past the Esmeralda Hotel, under the shade of the eucalyptus trees.

At present, the Petanca group meets between 2pam and 4pm although the time will change to 3pm as the weather gets warmer.

“Last Sunday, 13 players turned up and everyone, including family and friends, went for a social drink afterwards,” one of the players, David Farmer said.
