Sunday 10th July was a sport packed day in the diary; but not because of Wimbledon Men’s final, The British F1 Grand Prix or even the Euro 2016 Final between hosts France and Portugal . . . The Bennie Group held their annual summer Rounders Challenge and BBQ for all Group employees and their families.
Weather conditions were perfect (with only a few minor rain showers) for a heated set of matches to see which team would be crowned 2016 champions. Game 1 involved Barton Plant, Peter Bennie and Bennie Group employees taking on Ken Hall and T&S, with Bennie’s team taking the win. With winners staying on, Bennie’s team played Boughton Loam and Midland Forklifts team, with Bennie taking the win again and heading for the finals.
The final qualifying match between Ken Hall and Boughton’s team resulted in Ken Hall making it to the finals, and after a close game separated by ½ a rounder, Ken Hall once again took the victory.
Team work is important across our diverse family of companies but when it comes to rounders, our company teams play to win.
Congratulations to the Ken Hall & T&S team who won for the third year in a row. We won’t dwell on their extra players, as they continue to hold onto the company trophy for another year, and while they bask in their victory, we will look towards Summer 2017 for a rematch.
