WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND... HARTLEY FOWLER WOMBLEDON ROUNDERS TOURNAMENT
Last Friday 12th June saw the great and good of Wimbledon's business community get together once again to battle it out on the Rounders field. Now in its 42nd Year, Wombledon Rounders is a hugely popular evening, sponsored and hosted by Hartley Fowler, with 12 teams battling it out for the coveted trophy, followed by a BBQ and disco.
This year we decamped to a fantastic new venue at Old Rutlishians Cricket & Rugby Club in Merton Park but it was business as usual otherwise, with the event being oversubscribed within days of being announced.
Teams are made up of children and adults and very much a family affair which saw mother and son competing against each other and someone's grandfather stepping up to the plate as well.
After the initial rounds in which the run rate slowed as the drinks flowed, the semi-finals saw the competition hot up. A sudden downpour dampened the pitch but not our spirits and the break in play meant the last two remaining teams were ready and eager for a fiercely fought final.
Protocol Education had dominated the competition scoring over 400 runs in the initial rounds, but newcomers to Wimbledon and the tournament, Venture Marketing Group, were determined to make a lasting first impression.
In the end it was Venture Marketing Group who took the trophy playing a closely scored and evenly matched game. Congratulations and we expect to see you back to defend your title.
Celebrations and commiserations ensued with everyone enjoying the excellent BBQ food and drinks and finally getting down to some serious partying, not least the school boys showing the oldies how it was done on the dance-floor!
Photos from the event are available to view here
Hartley Fowler would like to say well done to all of the teams and their supporters for taking part, to Old Rutlishians for use of their grounds and clubhouse, to Merton Chamber for their support and particularly to Wendy and Sara of G&T Business for making it all possible.
We hope to see you all again and more next year!

FINALS DAY OF YOUNG STARTUP TALENT BRIGHTON & HOVE 2015

The judging day was held on Thursday 8 January 2015 at the British Engineerium in Hove. Dan Simpson, one of our Brighton Partners, was again one of the event's judges.

HARTLEY FOWLER STEP INTO THE RING WITH SPONSORSHIP OF WIMBLEDON KICKBOXER
Hartley Fowler has always aimed to pack a punch when it comes to dealing with our client's accounts.
So we were delighted to sponsor Katarzyna Kuczynska, a Wimbledon resident and amateur Kickboxer who earned a place to compete in the WAKO European Championships for TeamGB.
Katarzyna has been training at a Wimbledon based Martial Arts Dojo, The Holistic Fitness Studios for over 4 years and is currently a brown belt grade. Friendly, smiling and feminine Kat looks like she wouldn't hurt a fly, but a quick peek at her in action on YouTube and we decided it best not to mess with her!
Steve Dixon, Owner of The Holistic Fitness Studios told us how Kat has competed on a almost weekly basis at various competitions throughout the UK and has won many certificates, medals and geegaws for her trophy cabinet and so was not at all surprised when WAKO approached Kat at a competition asking her to train with them with the view to becoming part of the GB Team.
However like all of her team mates and competitors Kickboxing is not eligible for funding from Sport England and so Kat must fund the associated costs of all her fights herself this is where Hartley Fowler stepped in.
Helping people to achieve their business ambitions is one of Hartley Fowlers key values and so seeing The Holistic Fitness Studios appealing to their members to help raise money to send Kat to the championships and discovering that Steve and Kat have bother personally given up their time to help other local charities we felt that helping them would mean they continue to help others. We also now feel a little bit safer walking the mean streets of Wimbledon knowing we have help we can call on!
We wish Katarzyna the best of British luck!
