    I am Lynda, Group Leader of the choir .

    We welcome new members who enjoy singing a wide range of music,from musical shows to carols. With Philip Ashley as our excellent Musical Director ,we sing either A Cappella, with keyboard  accompaniment or with backing tracks. It is not essential to be able to read music. Philip will help you find your correct vocal range (Soprano, Alto, Tenor or Base )and he ensures that rehearsals are fun! Choir members currently contribute  10euros per month for his professional services.

     We look forward to meeting you the Viva Espania Restaurant , on Friday  afternoons. We start practices promptly at 15.00h and finish at 17.00h .

    Please come along to try it out and let me know beforehand so that you can be updated on the music we are working on

    • El Cid Bowls Club in Benidoleig

    Introduction to Oliva U3A Bowls

    Oliva U3A Bowls have an agreement with El Cid Bowls Club to play once a fortnight on a Monday afternoon. El Cid Bar and Restaurant, under separate management, is run by Charlie and her team who provide a range of facilities including food, mostly English, and of course hot and cold drinks.

    Location - El Cid Bar, Restaurant & Bowls, Carretera Benidoleig-Pedreguer, km 1, 03759, Alicante, Spain.

    The Group leader is Trevor Perks deputy Stu Norris. The group normally play in a friendly and relaxed way for a few hours once a fortnight on a Monday afternoon. Starting at 1.30 after registration and Green fees we draw for partners and opponents for the afternoon and mostly play pairs with four bowls.

    For those who would like coaching, especially those who are new to the game, we will give guidance on techniques and etiquette of the game.

    Green fees for each person is eight euros for each session collected at the start of the session and includes the use of Bowls. Note, many members use the club bowls along with other equipment.There is no Green fee  on the first occasion.

    Clothing and Equipment - The El Cid Club would like players to be in whites but will except something close. Footwear can be tricky the purpose of the rules is to protect the playing surface so insist on a different shoe for playing. A flat non heal smooth sole shoe is normally acceptable, as are stocking feet.  Please note for the first couple of occasions come as you wish.

    At the pavilion located in the corner of the play area there is a selection of all size bowls for your use. Plus all the support equipment like mats, jacks, score cards and boards, and would you believe sun hats. Our Group box also has measuring tape and chalk.

    Refreshments are permitted at each end of the rinks but must never be taken onto the green.

    The internet links above are helpful and are recommend especially if you're new to El Cid Restaurant and Bowls Club.
