The afternoon tournament had a lot of close matches with some excellent, long rallies. Special mention about the match between Lear and Charlotte, who have played against each other 27 times in the last couple of days and had some epic rallies!

There were a couple of players defending or trying to reclaim their titles from previous months. In the end, Roman was the winner, defending his title from the last tournament!

Table Tennis Tournament! October 14

Today we had planned to play volleyball but, unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and it was not a pleasant day to head to the beach. Instead, we held a Table Tennis Tournament!

With the last tournament being held just last week, the players were highly motivated to defend or claim the title of Lexis Champion! Today’s winner was Roman, who has a strong background in tennis (as a tennis instructor back in Spain!) and won the 6-pack of beer to enjoy.

Soccer Challenge! June 24

A few weeks ago we were challenged to a soccer match by the SAE College in Byron Bay. Facing a school with 200+ students, we were unsure of pulling a team together. But the Lexis Family has united and pulled together a team of 15 students!

IMG_3959

Having never played together before, the game started a bit rough. But after a few minutes, the Lexis team found their flow and gave the SAE team the challenge they didn’t know they were looking for!

IMG_3969

It was a very close first half, with the scores tied 1-1 at half time. The competition heated up in the second half, with the teams going goal for  goal until SAE pulled away and eventually won the match 6-4.

Every player on the team played really well and, though we didn’t win this time, will surely win that cup back at the next challenge!

Special thanks to http://www.letsgosurfing.com.au for providing our uniforms, and to all the players and staff at SAE College Byron Bay who came out to the match today!

Table Tennis Tournament! June 17

There was some tough competition at the Table Tennis Tournament this afternoon! Some players had been members of Table Tennis clubs back in their home countries, so the standard of play was very high.
