Rounders in Leeds Teams up with Leeds Girl Can

Rounders in Leeds | Rounders England

The summer season is hotting up and we’re not even half way through May! We caught up with Stephen Locking from ‘Rounders in Leeds’ and ‘Leeds Girl Can’ to find out more about their exciting partnership and how they are planning under 16s and over 16s Pudsey (Leeds) sessions.

This Girl Can is a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets. This Girl Can is helping women overcome the fear of judgement that is stopping too many women and girls from joining in. – thisgirlcan.co.uk

Rachel Kirk, Women’s and Girls Activator, said

The partnership between Leeds Girls Can and Rounders In Leeds came about from identifying an opportunity to create a different and fun way to get women and girls active. The benefits of playing Rounders includes many different aspects from a physical activity point of view and a social interaction point of view. It can help in physical ways including losing weight, reducing stress/anxiety and improving mental health, improving and promoting general health and offering social opportunities”.

The aim and objective of having both under 16 and over 16 Pudsey sessions is to allow a wide range of people to participate regardless of age. Rachel says

“on many occasions young people cannot or do not want to attend an adults session”.
