Return To Play Good Practice & Safeguarding


We want everyone to return to playing Rounders for all the benefits that it provides however preparation is necessary for the possible increase in concerns that participants may be exposed to. So, we have created a number of documents to provide teams with the information they need to consider all of the mitigations that have been identified. As a returning work force, it is important to be remindful of our roles and responsibilities around safeguarding.



We are currently at Stage 5 on the Return To Play Rounders Roadmap where competitive training and match play is now permitted, with groups limited to a maximum of 30 people, including umpires and coaches.
