On Wednesday 4 July 2018 the Exeter Young Business Club ("XYBC") hosted a sociable game of rounders at Riverside Valley Park, followed by a BBQ and drinks at the Double Locks pub. XYBC is an organisation established by Ashfords LLP that is run by junior solicitors. It aims to encourage young professionals within the business community to network and socialise.
Two teams (red and blue) comprised a mix of people from various professions and of all abilities. The teams played a total of 4 rounds and everyone who attended the event got the chance to play. Much to the dismay of the red team, the blue team took the most number of innings, assisted by a few very capable PKF Francis Clark batters, who rarely missed the ball!
Following the game, the teams leisurely made their way through Riverside Valley Park to the Double Locks pub for a drink and food. On arrival at the pub the Chair of the XYBC provided everyone at the event with a much deserved drink-token. Chatting and socialising followed over a delicious burger and chips provided courtesy of the Double Locks pub.
The evening was a great success - attendees enjoyed a relaxed and friendly environment in which to meet and get to know each other, assisted by a great game of rounders, lovely weather and delicious food and drink.
