The annual Gardner Leader Rounders Tournament hosted by the Maidenhead office took place for the third time on Wednesday 4 July. This took place at the Maidenhead Rugby Football Club and was a sweltering afternoon yet everyone was kept cool with ice pops and frozen water.
It was an afternoon to remember with a mixture of industries from the Maidenhead area and beyond including accountants, lawyers, barristers, financial advisers and insurance brokers. All were showing their elite (and not so elite) talent on the field. Five teams competed for the title of the 2018 Champions and the coveted trophy that comes with it. On the day Macbeth’s rounders skills proved too strong and they took home first place, out competing Wilson Partners in the final. Lamb Chambers and Menzies both performed well, coming in a joint third, which left Gardner Leader walking home with our tail between our legs.
James Bishop from Macbeth said “All the team at Macbeth had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, made sweeter by the fact we were able to take the trophy home for the second time in three years! The event was good fun, well organised and you get a trophy if you win! And of course it’s a great opportunity to meet some new people. We’re looking forward to bringing it home next year!”
It was a great afternoon had by all, with the opportunity to network after the event. We would like to say a big thank you to everyone that participated. To register for an invitation for the 2019 rounders tournament, please email [email protected]
