Morning Table Tennis Tournament – 24 October

Yesterday morning we held a table tennis tournament in the student lounge! It was the first VERY sunny day in quite some time, so we had a small group for our morning session. We reckon the others were at the beach! They missed out on all our fun 🙂 As there were only three students in the tournament, things got quite competitive (especially with the promise of beer for the winner). Here are the guys with their game face on, ready to go…

The all had some warm-up games first, before things got really serious…

Of course, there can only be one winner – Gilles! In fact, he was undefeated in all of his games! Well done Gilles. Some cold beers coming your way 🙂

September Table Tennis Tournament ’18!

Today we had our monthly Table Tennis Tournament!

We didn’t have as many competitors as usual as the sun was shining and the waves were good, so many of the students were heading to the beach for a surf!

They each played against eachother to 11,

Eric VS Lucas: Eric 11-7

Eric VS Jeff: Eric 11-4

Jeff VS Ibon: Jeff 11-3

Ibon VS Lucas: Ibon 11-6

Ibon: 24

Jeff: 26

and the winner with 33 points… Eric!!!

Eric did have a slight advantage being that he’s a tennis coach, but he kindly shared his beers so everyone was happy 🙂

Soccer match against BBELS! 23 May

Yesterday we played Soccer against another of Byron’s local schools!

We lost some of our sign ups due to rain, but still had eleven determined players who weren’t going to be put off by a little bit of bad weather!

After the first 20 minutes the blue skies were back and we were even treated to a beautiful rainbow!

Our team was made up of 8 boys and 3 girls and they all played amazingly together, with great spirit and teamwork.

The students continued to play even as it got dark and the rain came back! Real competitors!!

Well done to Fabio, Joao, Jeff, Cristiano, Sevie, Alex, Benoit, Gabriela, Patrick, Laurene and Helena for securing Lexis a 4 – 1 win!!!

GO TEAM LEXIS!!
