About the Competitions…

Why? Connecting people through Rounders. What better way than having lots of opportunities to get together with likeminded people and play Rounders!

Who? They’ll be plenty of competitions to get stuck into whether you’re a new team, existing team, winners of your league, school team, and University team.

What? The competitions are broken up into two types; broadening your social circle and fun and the other is all about team spirit and winning. There are school competitions for ages 10 – 16, University Clubs, festival style competitions, a Championship competition and more!

Where? All over the country!

When? Check out the full competition calendar here.
