Int Intermediate Table Tennis 2011 on PhotoPeach

Today the Waikato Inter Intermediate Table Tennis competition was held in Hamilton.  Melville fielded a Boys and Girls team in the competition.   The Boys finished 6th and the Girls managed to come 4th.  Well be updating this post with team reports as they come in.   Well done to everyone involved and to Mitchell who took these images and filmed this video of Kyle from Room 18 in competition.  A big thank you to Mitchell's Dad and Otis's Dad who helped with the school teams on the day.

This is Alicia from Room 5's account of Table Tennis:
We walked into this giant hall, there was about sixteen teams there and some of them looked very serious - others were relaxed. Some of the other kids and I had the worst case of the butterflies. The hall had about 15 tables. The girls first game was against Morrinsville. Amythst and I were the first two to play off. We won the first and second game, so we didn't have a third game. Then it was Sita and Anika's turn to play against the other two players, unfortunately they lost both of their games. In our singles I won both my games, Ami won both, Sita won 1 and lost 2 and Anika won 1 and lost two. We played Berkley School, it was a very interesting game, we all lost except one of mine and Ami's doubles and two of Ami's singles. She was winning pretty much every time. We made it into the finals. We had to play Berkley again, and it was the same result. At the end of the day we were so tired from playing so many schools but we were ready to hear the results. "Melville Girls 4th" said the lady in charge. "Woo hoo" cheered all the teams that we were friends with.
