Satellite Club Offer
What is a ROUNDERS Satellite Club?
They are extensions or outposts of community sports clubs, which are established in new venues, perhaps a secondary school or college, and are targeted at 14-25 year olds.
Why are ROUNDERS Satellite Clubs so important?
As a sport we want to encourage more young people to stay in the sport or to start playing the game for the first time. So, by providing an offer which is relevant and appealing, the new opportunity will create an ideal stepping stone from school to community success!
A ROUNDERS Satellite Club offers:
- The chance of providing new ROUNDERS opportunities for young people at evenings or weekends
- Branching out to a new area to promote the game of ROUNDERS
- Broadening the scope of what the game of ROUNDERS can offer to attract a wider range of young people to the club
Why should your school choose ROUNDERS for a Satellite Club?
Whether your school already plays rounders or is introducing the game for the first time, rounders has something for you. With your ROUNDERS Kit Bag the game can be adapted as necessary to suit the Rounders knowledge of the teacher, the young person or the surface which you will be playing on.
What support is available?
Sport England have invested heavily in this project and there is funding available through County Sports Partnership (CSP) and Rounders England to help support schools to kick start a ROUNDERS Satellite club. If you are interested in hosting a ROUNDERS Satellite Club at your school, please contact your local School Club Link Maker at your CSP or your Rounders England, Programme Manager.
What will be in my ROUNDERS Satellite Kit Bag?
- 4 x Rounders Bats
- 4 x Balls (2 x Rounders Balls / 2 x Tennis Balls)
- 4 x Large Cones (Posts)

Other key points to delivering a successful ROUNDERS Satellite Club:
- The club needs to be based locally, usually within a secondary school or college
- Open to all young people across the local community and not just those attending the secondary school/college
- Run regularly (at least once a week) with delivery not just limited to term time
- Structured less formally
