What is it?
Rounders is a striking and fielding team game, where points known as ’rounders’ are scored by a player hitting a ball with a bat and then completing a circuit of the track – consisting of four posts.
The aim is to both score the most amount of rounders, as well as to get the batting team ‘out’ as fast as possible.
Why is it good for me?
Playing rounders can improve your skills, reflexes and cardiovascular health. Getting outside and getting to know a new group of people can also be beneficial to your mental health.
How much does it cost?
Playing Rounders can cost from £2 per session and many taster sessions may be free.
If you play with a team you will generally pay an annual subscription.
What equipment do I need?
Comfortable clothes, with a bit of stretch.
Bats, balls, posts and bases will be provided at organised sessions, but you may want to invest in your own bat if you get really serious!
You could also buy your own kit and set up in any open space for free!
