FAQ

Q1. I haven’t played rounders since I was at school – will I still be able to play?

The aim of the Play Simple Rounders League is to provide an opportunity for anyone who hasn’t played rounders for a while to pick up a bat and ball and have a go! It’s amazing how quickly you’ll remember how to play the game again and don’t worry, there will be lots of other players in exactly the same position as you.

Q2. I don’t have a team to play for!

Not to worry, we also accept entries from individual players. We’ll do all the leg work for you and place you in a team with other like-minded players. We’ll even organise practice sessions for you and your team mates before the league starts.

Just register with us as an individual player. If you register with a friend, we’ll ensure that you both get to play in the same team.

Q3. I think I have a full team – what do I need to do next?

We would recommend that you have between 9-12 players in your team. If you’re a player or two short, we can always put you in touch with individual players to make up the numbers. When you’re got your full team, go to the “Register” page and fill in your details.

Q4. Will I need any equipment?

No – the pitch, bases, bat and ball (and even the umpires!) are all provided so your team can just turn up and play.

Q5. Do I have to wear a kit?

There are no kit requirements to be able play in the Play Simple Rounders League – you need is a good pair of trainers, some comfortable clothes to play in and off you go!

Q6. Do I have to provide an umpire?

No, the umpires will be provided for you.

Q7. What do I do if I can’t get a full team out each week?

Teams must commit to doing their best to field a full side each week (there will be a £30 fine if a team is unable to fulfil their weekly fixture).

We will however do our best to ensure that this never happens by allowing you to play “ringers” – registered players from a different team who would like to play an extra game that week

Q8. When are the matches played?

Matches are played on Tuesday evenings from 6.30pm – 9pm during the summer season.
