An Overview of Rounders
Rounders 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.
