Quiz Night Victors!


Thursday 28th February 2019

Event start: 18:00

The Garratt & Gauge





The AFC Wimbledon Business Club convened at the Garratt & Gauge pub in the heart of Wimbledon for a hotly contested Quiz Night.

Before our very own quizmaster Ivor Heller kicked-off proceedings, Business Club members paired up to form their teams and get down to business!

It was a fantastic evening with new and longstanding members networking and enjoying a drink before the real brain work got underway.

Recruitment firm Reed recently joined the Business Club and highlighted just why they wanted to come on board ahead of the football club’s move back to Wimbledon.

"The Business Club provides us with an opportunity to market our services more widely in partnership with the club. As a born and bred resident of Merton, it is important for me personally to support my local club, and I hope that our membership will in some way contribute to the club’s growth and development.

Since becoming a member, I have been introduced to a variety of local businesses people who share my passion and enthusiasm for the club and local community. I am very much looking forward to the March event!"

It was another excellent event, giving us the opportunity to connect with others in the Wimbledon business community in a relaxed and fun environment.

Ivor’s quiz-mastery, which certainly came to the fore during the music round, kept the teams on their toes through six rounds of questions.

However, there could be only one winner! After rising from the ashes of the earlier rounds, Morrisons Solicitors and Stronger Fitness & Martial Arts, packed the biggest punch to claim victory.

Adam Playle, Senior Business Development at Morrisons Solicitors LLP, said:

“We were delighted to take first place last night! The welcome addition of Tom from Stronger Fitness & Mixed Martial Arts to the Morrisons trio created a well-rounded font of obscure knowledge. It was another excellent event, giving us the opportunity to connect with others in the Wimbledon business community in a relaxed and fun environment. We are proud to be members and can’t wait for the next event.”

A fun-fuelled evening of general knowledge, networking, drinks and nibbles was certainly had by the Business Club on a cold, wet February night!

Our next event will see Business Club members team up to compete in four friendly and fun games at the Geeks Game Night!
