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.

Rounders England Toolkit

Rounders England's aim is to get more people than ever before playing the game on a regular basis; in the local park with friends and family, or with work colleagues in a local sports centre. By reading and following the simple guidelines in this toolkit, Rounders England hope that you'll put a smile on the faces of new recruits as they chuck, whack and leg their way through an energetic and fun game of rounders!

Rounders can bring a smile to the face of anyone regardless of their age, background, disability or gender. Whilst wanting to share the simplicity, excitement and fun of the game with everyone, there are three groups of people Rounders England want to target in particular; mums, students, and people working for local businesses.
