La Plata, Argentina. A new school year begins for Basque clubs in the southern hemisphere and with very different realities, they are adapting to what has come to be called the “new normal.” Euzko Etxea in La Plata has a large headquarters in which it is not difficult to guarantee social distancing, one of the recommendations to face the Coronavirus.  The club has implemented a strict protocol that includes masks, hand sanitizer, special cleaning and ventilation, and is resuming its in person activities.

The return to its facilities is important for everyone but in particular for the club’s sports program.  Remember that Euzko Etxea has a large offering for athletes with different capacities that include soccer and goalball, both disciplines for the blind, and in March, they will be incorporated into “sitting volleyball,” intended for athletes with locomotor disabilities.

During these weeks, they are also resuming volleyball practice, and continue pelota paleta and on March 1st the Xare School will begin.  Besides activities in the kantxa, they Chess and Mus workshops have also returned to in person meetings.

In regards to cultural offerings, the “Begiradak” film series in the Toki Alai hall goes ahead, and by the end of April, the Traveling Basque Film program will also return to the screen.  The entity also reports that its Matxin Burdin Library is also open and the workshop on Philosophy has returned to the clubhouse after being held online in 2020.
