5 Reasons to think about the Rounders Rules Review

Rounders Rules Review

With only one rule book review every three years, we thought it would be good to highlight some of the benefits of submitting a proposal…

  1. You will have a better Rounders experience

If you have a rule that you’ve been sitting on wanting to change, or you want to propose/extend a hint, now is your time! It will not only have a positive impact on your Rounders experience, but you could contribute to the longevity of the game and positively impact on the experience of players that are just starting out.

  1. It adds value to your membership

If you do have a proposal and others vote for the proposal, it will help us be more effective in delivering results for our members. This increases member satisfaction and keeps us in line with what the community wants. Having a National Governing Body that represents the needs of its members adds value to your membership and helps the future of the game.

  1. It’s how you get what you want

As mentioned in point 2, by submitting a proposal and voting, you can choose the rules that are most relevant to you. This is a huge upside. There is no upside to not voting, only the downside of letting someone else decide if a rule is reviewed.

  1. It helps you and everyone else

As a current member, don’t you hope that previous members made the right decision to benefit you while you are playing? Pay it forward as experienced players and workforce and shout up if you feel like something needs to be changed.

  1. It could impact on the longevity of the game
