We are a friendly and sociable group of backgammon players. We meet on the last Sunday of each month at a country finca on the outskirts of Palma. Tapas, vino, conversation, a swim maybe and of course attepts to win the coveted Quinta Queen trophy for a month. We are of varying skill levels at the game so don´t take it too seriously! You can find out more on Facebook - MallorcaBackgammon or please call.
The first meeting of the Mallorca Rock & Pop Choir will take place next Saturday 3 Dec at 3pm in Santa Eugenia. The meeting will be a chance for us to get to know one another, discuss ideas for the choir, and maybe even do a little singing! Everyone welcome, especially men as there is currently a shortage of male voices. We are also looking for a musical director/choir master. Please contact me direct if you are interested in attending.
We have an active bridge club here in Palma with players from all over the world. All players are welcome. Bridge is a great way to make new frinds in your new home, indeed the famous tennis player Martina Navratilova said, "No matter where I go, I can always make new friends at the Bridge table." If you don't play, contact me for information about classes, by email if possible to firstname.lastname@example.org (Or by phone, 971 402294, my husband John answers the phone for me)
I´m starting a group for backgammon players of all abilties. We used to meet monthly in London and everyone played three games with everyone else. Whoever ended up with the most points kept the eggcup-sized silver cup for the following month. All pretty informal and a pleasant social evening ensued. Initially we will meet at my place in Establiments but maybe other people might like to host an evening. If you are interested please drop me a line: Grahame_Wilson@hotmail.com.
I am trying to find out if there are any bridge venues on the island, apart from Palma city. I know there is an "Asociacion Balear de Bridge" which holds meetings in the Valparaiso Hotel in Bonanova & the Santa Ponsa Golf hotel. I think there is another association called "Asociacion Espanola de Bridge" so wondered if they have venues in quieter parts of the island. I can't find anything online about them. I'd be grateful for anyone's help... so thank you in advance!
