About Us

Rufus the Hawk is a Harris's Hawk used by the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club to keep pigeons away from their venue. Described as an "important member of the Wimbledon family", Rufus has been scaring away the birds for fifteen years, taking over from the previous hawk, Hamish.

The All England Club employ Rufus to patrol their 42-acre grounds throughout the year, with daily visits during the two weeks of The Championships and the 2012 Summer Olympics. Pigeons are particularly attracted to the roof of the centre court. He has also been employed to scare pigeons away from Westminster Abbey, various hospitals, airfields, and landfill sites.

You can grab the chance to meet Rufus at Wimbledon, just look out for our pop-up shop between 10am-11am for a meet and greet.

 

Rufus THE HAWK Products

ETHICS AND THE ENVIRONMENT ARE VITALLY IMPORTANT TO OUR TEAM THAT'S WHY WE ONLY PARTNER WITH THE BEST

We decided to partner with the best suppliers such as Fruit of the Loom garments; as they make products the right way. All Fruit facilities are fully WRAP certified (an independent world organisation that ensures lawful, humane and ethical manufacturing) and their Moroccan plant has achieved a Gold Certificate of Compliance. They only use ethically-produced yarn and all the garments are independently Oeko-Tex Standard 100 approved. This approval certifies that they contain absolutely no substances that are harmful to humans or the environment. The Moroccan plant includes its own water-treatment facility that recycles up to 60% of the water we use, returning it to the river cleaner than when it arrived. As a result of this, the river bed has completely regenerated and is once again alive with fish and wildlife. These ethical and environmental credentials are industry-leading. As ethical manufacturing is important to our business, that's why we choose Fruit of the Loom.
