Canasta Groups

There are 4 groups playing Canasta. All meet in the afternoons but on three different days. Two of the groups play a very different variation called JARS (Jávea Aussie Rules) developed by the players here in Jávea.

Check out what each group has to offer and contact the Group Leader if you are interested in joining.

Canasta JARS (Javea Aussie Rules)

Group Leader: Valerie Cox
Email Address:
Meeting Venue: Café Express, Av. Jaime Rey, Jávea Port
Time for Both: 2.45 PM for a 3PM START


 We are more than happy to teach new or experienced card players with no prior knowledge of Traditional Canasta. Any existing card players may find this game is something they would enjoy learning. Coaching will be available in small groups of 4 by appointment.

This game is crafty, tactical and addictive, we all want to win but we are a gentle, friendly group and play for fun.

If you are already a Canasta player and wish to diversify we are happy to “show you the ropes” for this exciting Javea version of Traditional Canasta.

THE TUESDAY GROUP is full at present and a waiting list is in operation. THE THURSDAY GROUP has a few spaces available, please Email the Group Leader to register your interest.
