What is Rounders?

The sport of Rounders is a fun, exciting, 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.

It can be played by both sexes, at any age, at varying levels of ability, as a competitive match or a recreational activity.

Rounders is for everyone. Adult teams can be made up of friends, work colleagues, players from other sports looking for a summer game and young people who want to continue playing rounders after leaving school. The initial appeal is that rounders is fun to play, and doesn't involve buying a lot of very expensive equipment.
