U3A Oliva

The Oliva U3A was founded in 2007 and now boasts several hundred members enjoying around 35 groups, ranging from the active (Walking Football, Badminton) to the not-so physically active (Canasta, Keyboard). Here’s a full list of the groups presently running.

Monthly meetings – open to all members – are usually held at the Polivalent (map here), on the fourth Thursdays of the month – these are not currently being held due to Covid-19 restrictions.

As well as our groups and meetings, members can also enjoy a range of benefits from business ranging from discount on travel, to discounts on Internet and TV or help with medical care.

The University of the Third Age (U3A) is an international movement whose aims are the education and stimulation of mainly retired members of the community — those in their third ‘age’ of life.

Its original conception in France as an extramural university activity was significantly modified in the United Kingdom where it was recognized that most people of retirement age have something to contribute and the emphasis has been on sharing, without formal links to traditional universities.

U3A membership is not related to a specific age but to a period in one’s life (the third age) after the second age of full-time employment and parental responsibility. Anybody in their third age can join U3A and this includes people who are working part-time. There is no lower age for membership.

Important – Covid Reporting Requirement

This is a note of importance to ALL U3A Oliva members who attend any of our Groups or meetings – regardless of whether the group or meeting is held indoors or outdoors, at any venue. Full Info Here …
