Table Tennis! August 21st

Wednesday afternoon we had our monthly Table Tennis Tournament. It was a lovely sunny afternoon so we only had a small turn out, but it was still tight competition.

First up was Naoki vs Fabrice. It was a close game, with both competitors being equally as strong. In the end, Fabrice was the first to score 21 points and win the match. Next up was Fernanda vs Johnny..

Fernanda was July’s champion and also the runner up in June. She is a fierce competitor and hard one to beat! This month was no exception and she defeated both Johnny and Fabrice to win herself the 6 pack of beer!
