A captain in the Hungarian Army, his major polo honour came in winning the 1934 King’s Cup when Hungary beat France in the final at Roma. His team-mates that day were [Imre Szentpály], [Dezsö Kovács] and Gaston Hámory, a reserve for the 1936 Olympics. Bartalis was also on the team that lost to a French team at the same venue two days later in the final of the Count Volpi di Misurata Cup.
