Rounders

A child throwing a ball

Number of Players 8+

How it’s played:

1 A simpler version of baseball, rounders is played between two teams
2 Set up four bases back in a diamond shape
3 One team bats the ball and tries to run around the four bases back to home
4 The other team tries to catch the ball, and return it to base/home to ‘‘out’’ the player before they reach it
5 Players running between bases are out if the ball is caught with two hands before it hits the ground
6 If the ball is caught with one hand, the whole team is out and the fielders take up batting
7 Whichever team scores the most runs wins.

REMEMBER to play somewhere safe.
