The ever popular Harwell Summer Rounders Tournament is a great opportunity to do something different and fun at lunch-time and possibly even aquire some silverware! We play in mixed teams and all abilities are catered for. The season runs from late May to early August.
Rounders has been played at Harwell since the early 1960s and is a sport in which anyone can participate, regardless of age or ability. You definitely don't need to be a fitness fanatic or a rounders ace. The tournament is a great opportunity to socialise with people from around the site, as well as being a lot of fun. It's also surprising how whacking a ball with a bat can reduce your stress levels. Teams are mixed comprising ten players with a maximum of six men, although players can be selected from a squad of any number. Many teams include occasional players, as well as those who play in almost every match.
Matches start at 1230, comprising four ten-minute innings. Matches are not played in wet weather. The tournament typically consists of leagues in which all teams play, followed by a knockout stage. Trophies are presented to the winning teams.
So, why not enter a team into the tournament this year? If you can't find enough players or you want to join a team, let us know. We'll put you in touch with a team near you. Season starts in mid May. For further details, please take a look around this web site.
