History l.jpg
History

Originally called “Rounders” or “Townball”.

Played in England as early as the 16th Century.

Used sticks and a ball made of leather.

Each time a defender successfully returned to the Castle, he scored for his team.

The game would end after each

team had been “In” the same

number of times.

There was no limit to number of

“In”ings, only nightfall and exhaustion.


Rules of rounders l.jpg
Rules of “Rounders”

The “Striker” (batter) had no limit on the number of swings.

Any hit (even a tip) counted.

Runners ran clockwise.

Runners could run anywhere outside of the “Sanctuaries” (bases).

“Striker” was out if ball was caught in the air or on one bounce.

Runner was out if hit with a thrown ball.
