Transcript of The rules of rounders..
The sport of Rounders is a fun, exciting and fielding team game, where points known as ‘Rounders’ are scored by a player hitting a ball and then completing a circuit of the track. It can be played by both sexes, at any age, at varying levels of ability, as a competitive match. It can be played outdoors, on grass, artificial surfaces, on the beach or indoors in a sports hall.
Whether you can reach 1st Post or 4th Post, Rounders can give you, your friends and your family a fun sport to help keep you fit and healthy.
When you ask people about Rounders it brings a smile, revisiting memories of a fun, team sport they played at school. But Rounders is for everyone – schools, universities and colleges, adults, families and even a great activity for corporate away days.
Teams can be a minimum of 6 players and a maximum of 15 players. 9 players are on the field for each team at any one time.
One team bats while the other team fields and bowls.
The bowler bowls the ball to the batter, who hits the ball anywhere on the Rounders pitch. The batter then runs to as many posts as possible before the fielders return the ball to touch the post the batter is heading for.
Games are usually played over 2 innings.
All bats should have a grip made for the purpose.
1..Wooden – The surface of the bat should be kept smooth and free from splinters and dirt. When spliced, the joint and any binding should be tight, firm and secure.
2..Aluminum – Caps and grips should be well fitted and not allowed to become loose.
3..plastic - The surface of the bat should be smooth
Posts must be fitted with a safety cap. They must be supported by a base and not fixed into the ground. Wooden posts should be sheathed in plastic.
White or coloured balls are allowed and should be considered when assessing the playing conditions. All stitching should be flush to the outer covering with no raised seams. Stitching should be uniform, tight and unfrayed. The outer covering should be free from tears and projections. The ball should be kept clean and free from dirt. Wet balls that weigh heavier than the rule specifications should not be used
All kit must be suitable for the purpose. Most sports kit is acceptable. Teams normally wear the same kit.
Spiked footwear, for example running spikes, is prohibited. It is recommended that football boots (with studs meeting the rule requirements) or astro shoes are worn in wet weather.
Player’s numbers must be visible to the umpires.
A minimum post swing of ½ metre before returning to its correct position will be attained. Bases must be of a rubber-like substance. Metal bases are no longer approved.
There are two umpires.
The first is the batting umpire, who must have a clear view at all times of the batting square and the first post without having to turn their head. The second official is the bowler's umpire. They may consult each other, and their decisions on the state of play are final. After the first inning is complete, the two umpires swap positions on the pitch in the interest of fairness
Apply the rules of rounders in four specific situations.
no ball rule- when receiving two 'no balls' from the bowler your team automatically gets half rounder. changing the rules, your team had to receive four 'no balls' before getting half rounder.
'The ball over line' normally when the ball goes over the line behind batting square your only aloud to first base until the ball is passed back over the line. however, now your not aloud to run at all until the ball is passed over the line, your aloud to move from the batting square.
Normally when unable to hit the ball from batting square, but still run heading for half rounder at second base. Now if you do not hit the ball and run to second base you do NOT score half rounder.
When hitting the ball from batting square and a fielder catches the ball, instead of only you being out, your whole teams out.
