ROUNDERS COMPETITION 9th June 2023
We took part in a rounders competition held at Kirk Balk Academy on Friday 9th June. There were three games being simultaneously played, officiated by Kirk Balk Academy Sports Leaders.
What are the physical benefits of playing rounders? When you play rounders, you have to strike a ball, run, bowl and catch – all of which have benefits for coordination, agility, flexibility, strength and stamina. Concentration is paramount to be able to strategise and work as a team.
Well, we played applying all these disciplines and what terrific teamwork we displayed. Absolutely tremendous!! At the end of the tournament, we won silver medals, with only one rounder scored by the winners, so an extremely tight competition.
