Read More

That’s right, we aren’t joking! Remember those days when you used to play rounders on the school field? Well we are bringing the good times back. Regardless of your currently level of exercise, Your Move and Y:Women Can are bringing back this playground classic. 

The Your Move rounders is a fantastic free community session which we are proud to launch with summer around the corner.

WHAT IS ROUNDERS?

Rounders is a striking and fielding team game, where points known as ’rounders’ are scored by a player hitting a ball with a bat and then completing a circuit of the track – consisting of four posts. The aim is to both score the most amount of ’rounders’ as well as to get the batting team ‘out’ as fast as possible.

WHY IS IT GOOD FOR ME?

  • As well as hand-eye co-ordination, playing rounders can improve your skills, reflexes and cardiovascular health
  • The simplicity of rounders, recalled from childhood, means that returning to the game is not a daunting prospect
  • The fun and social aspect of this team sport can benefit your general well-being
  • Between the throwing, catching, running and batting, you may find yourself burning up to 400 calories in an hour!

HOW MUCH DOES ROUNDERS COST?

Playing rounders  with Your Move will cost you nothing, completely free, not a penny.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?

Generally anything goes, but sportswear or comfortable leisure clothing with a bit of stretch is recommended. We’ve got the rest!
