rounders equipment

Rounders is the ultimate outdoor game that can be played by the whole family. Whether you’re in your back garden, the local park or even at the beach, Rounders provides great entertainment while getting some exercise in too!

All you need to play is a ball (Tennis or foam ball) and a bat, which can be in the form of a rounders bat, but a tennis racket can also be used to make it easier to hit the ball.

  1. Rounders games are normally played between two teams, in which one team bats and one team fields.
  2. One player from the fielding team will be the bowler, who bowls the ball to the batter.
  3. The bowler bowls the ball to the batter who hits the ball forward on the Rounders Pitch. The batter then runs to as many posts as possible before the fielders return the ball to touch the post the batter is heading for.
  4. If the batter reaches the 2nd or 3rd post in one hit, the batting team scores ½ a Rounder. If the batter reaches 4th post in one hit, the batting team scores a Rounder.
