Rounders is a striking and fielding team game, where points known as 'Rounders' are scored by a player hitting a ball and then completing a circuit of the track. From 9 a-side 2 innings games to fun mini versions; variations of the game include indoor Rounders, wheelchair Rounders, and outdoors on grass or artificial surfaces and on the beach.
This non-contact sport is one with few barriers to entry and can be played in single sex or mixed sex teams. Though it is recognised as a wholly British sport, with documents dating it back to 1744, it is played throughout the UK and Ireland, as well as the Isle of Man and Dubai.
Rounders England have launched a downloadable toolkit to arm potential participants with all of the information they will need to start organising and playing action packed games of rounders. As well as a recap on the rules of the game, the toolkit provides advice on the equipment needed to play; top tips for creating fun Rounders sessions; and ways of promoting games in the local area. Also included are helpful materials like printable posters, flyers and scorecards to help publicise and run matches.
