Welcome to The Field Club Online

WHO ARE WE?

The Field Club was founded on 2nd. July 1990, initially by a small group of friends, who all enjoyed the simple pleasure of walking in the Spanish countryside.  Since those early days it has grown considerably and in 2002 became formally registered under Spanish Law as the Club Multinacional de Senderismo (The Field Club) and now has over two hundred members from many Countries and backgrounds.

 

Fortunately, although much larger, the Field Club still retains the same basic principles on which it was founded – enjoyment of walking, a love of the countryside and the good company of like-minded friends.

The Field Club activities are organised by the Committee, elected at the Annual General Meeting,  who work on a voluntary basis to ensure that the Club is properly run and that the members are provided with a varied and enjoyable programme of walks and social events.

WHAT DO WE DO?

 

The Field Club year is divided into two seasons, January to May and September to December in each of which there is a full programme of walks of varying degrees of difficulty.  The Short Walks Programme is composed of relatively easy walks from six to ten kilometres which are generally accessed by car.  Whilst these walks are not particularly difficult they still require a moderate level of fitness. The Long Walks Programme contains a variety of more challenging countryside and mountain walks of up to 20 Kms.  All require a higher level of fitness and are graded so that members can select those which are within their physical capabilities.  Long walks are normally accessed by coach for which a charge, currently ten Euros, is made.  The programme is designed so that walkers of different capabilities all have the opportunity to enjoy the sort of walk which suits them best.

In addition there is a social programme of events including dinner dances and luncheons and normally two walking holidays during the year usually in Andalucia but sometimes further afield in Spain and occasionally abroad.

A copy of both the Spring and Autumn programme of events can be found by clicking on the links in the menu, if you find it to your liking and feel that you would be interested to know more then why not come and meet us, we look forward to making your acquaintance.

 

WHERE DO WE MEET?

 

During the two walking seasons we meet every Monday morning, between 10.30 and 11.30 at the Hogar del Jubilado, Calle Blanca Paloma, Fuengirola, a map can be found by accessing the link in the menu.  There are several desks open each Monday where members can book on the walks and the various social events which are available.  It is also a very sociable gathering where members and friends can chat over a coffee.
