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.


  • Offers the opportunity to get outside into the fresh air and sunshine
  • Can improve fitness
  • Social benefits of being part of a team


If you're looking to organise and set up your own team then the Rounders England Toolkit should be your first port of call! The toolkit provides essential advice on the equipment you'll need, scorecards for your games and top hints and tips for building fun sessions to get people active.


To play a game of rounder you will need: Bats, posts, bases and balls


  • The game of rounders has been played in England since Tudor times.
  • As of March 2015, 15,500 people play Rounders regularly within the programmes of Rounders England
