Welcome to the U3A Oliva
We are a friendly branch of the world-wide U3A organisation, whose purpose is to provide activities for those in their ‘Third Age’ – after education and full-time employment.
For more information about the U3A and Oliva, click on the About Us page in the menu.
We run many groups, from Ambling to Zumba – simply go to the Groups page on the menu above to find out more information.
We are always happy to meet new members, so if you are interested in joining us, please don’t hesitate to contact our Membership Secretary here, visit one of our groups or join us for a coffee at the back of the market hall on the Paseo (here) on the last Friday morning of the month from 11.00 – 12.00 (Starts again in September).
What's coming up this month...
Come and join us for some basic Yoga exercises (often chair yoga), breathing techniques, relaxation techniques and unlimited advice and help on the subject of yoga.
Calling all arty-crafty members.
The craft and yarn group is anything you want it to be.
We are a friendly group meeting on alternate Tuesday mornings helping each other to improve our Spanish.
Pétanque is a form of boules where the goal is to throw hollow metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a jack.
Canasta (Spanish for “basket”) is a card game of the rummy family of games. Although many variations exist for two, three, five or six players, it is most commonly played by four in two partnerships with two standard decks of cards.
We’re a Group of mixed abilities and we are always looking for more players. Perhaps you have played Whist or similar games in the past and would like to learn to play bridge but thought it too complicated. If so, come and find out for yourself, you are most welcome!
Keep checking here for updates!
We have a new Flamenco beginners’ class, starting on September 7th at the Pensionistes Building, 1st floor, from 11:00 - 12:00 hours. The charges will be 5 euros per person per class and the first class will be FREE. There will be a chance for everyone to learn this exciting dance and to progress to even more difficult routines!
Would you be interested in becoming part of our small Travel Team?
Your Committee and I are looking for volunteers to help with planning trips and events for 2022-23. You would not need to attend every trip nor would you need to serve on the U3A Oliva Committee. Any little volunteer role would be more than welcome – for example, taking the names of members before they start a bus trip or liaising with a venue to book a Coffee Morning. No experience in planning events or trips is necessary.
Interested? Please get in touch with me and we’ll take it from there. Let’s ‘hit the road’ in 2022-23!
