The online downloadable toolkit will provide potential participants with all of the information they will need to start organising and playing action packed games of rounders.
As well as a recap on the rules of the game, the toolkit provides advice on the equipment needed to play; top tips for creating fun rounders sessions; and ways of promoting games in the local area. Also included are helpful materials like printable posters, flyers and scorecards to help publicise and run matches.
The toolkit aims to promote sustained participation in the game of rounders to new and existing audiences, in particular, Mums, Students and Corporates. The toolkit highlights the fun aspect and simplicity of rounders and its main objective is to drive informal, social play.
