Morning Table Tennis! 5 December

After a rainy night in the Bay, we had the perfect activity lined up for yesterday – table tennis! Gustavo was ready and waiting when I got to the student lounge and then the girls joined in 🙂

We had some very intense singles games first, followed by a less intense 2-against-1, followed then by a very fun and energetic doubles game (including me!).

 

We have some amazing fun (and FREE!) activities lines up for this month of December —-> (see here) <—- so be sure to sign up at reception and come along for a fun way to meet people and improve your English! 🙂

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 🙂

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!
