June Table Tennis Tournament!

On Wednesday we had our monthly Table Tennis Tournament!

The results from the first round were:

Luis VS Juliana: LUIS

Mauricio VS Asana: MAURICIO

Keigo VS Lucas: KEIGO

Rodrigo VS Chihiro: RODRIGO

Felipe VS Sarah: FELIPE

As we had an odd number going through to the semi finals one lucky player was picked at random to go straight through to the finals: FELIPE!

Luis VS Rodrigo: RODRIGO

Keigo VS Mauricio: MAURICO

The three finalists then each played against eachother to see who would get June’s title!

Felipe VS Rodrigo: FELIPE 11-8

Felipe VS Mauricio: MAURICIO 11-10

Rodrigo VS Mauricio: Mauricio 11-10

With Mauricio winning both of his games, this made him this month’s champion and winner of a 6 pack of beer!
