UK2 Staff Wii Tournament 2008

May 22nd, 2008 by

There is nothing like a bit of group bonding to break down a few barriers, and as there has been a few new starters at UK2 in recent weeks, we thought it was about time that we rallied the troops and added a bit of fun into an otherwise busy UK2 office.

Please put your hands together for the first of many UK2 Wii Tournaments. Each department will play each other at various Wii games the first of which is ‘Tennis’.

This tournament did start off as a bit of fun, but since sending round the staff newsletter each department has got a just a wee bit competitive……team names, pom poms, Nick names, I wouldn’t be surprised if I see some teams donning costumes!

At the risk of getting hit, does that mean that the marketing team girls aren’t very ‘small’ 😉

Muhahahhahhahah

To be fair though, the second match with Ditlev was very finely balanced at ‘Deuce’, the advantage did go back and forth numerous times before there could only be one winner 2 – 0! 😛

Team Small and Mighty (plus four gorgeous girls!) aka Marketing

Team Leader – Nicola
Andy – Slightly Confused Maybe?

Dave’s Badger fixation was clearly what caused our downfall this time around. Let the fractious internal bickering begin ;-).
