Training to Get Beach Ready with Cornwall Sports Partnership

Rounders at 2017 Cornwall Beach Games

A great news story from Rounders England about our very own Rounders Project!

Rounders England has the privilege of working alongside a number of Delivery Partners, who are not only experts in their field of sports but have the passion for rounders to match!

As we approach winter, we check in with Cornwall Sports Partnership to find out how they're spending their winter months training to beat this year's Beach Games mighty score of 170 Rounders in just 1 hour!

Cornwall Sports Partnership is on a mission to make sport and physical activity a part of everyday life in Cornwall. Over 250 people play Rounders in Cornwall, whether it be through a team, community group or workplace, there's something for everyone!

Lewis Sanders, Project Coordinator for the Partnership, told Rounders England of the impressive 170 Rounders scored within just 1 hour at this year's Beach Games. Lewis went on to say: "The best thing for us about delivering Rounders is the opportunities that Rounders leads to...everyone's feeling excited for the indoor season and with the new indoor venues planned, Rounders in 2018 is going to be MASSIVE."

The Partnership saw a number of people returning to physical activity this summer, one player shared: "as someone who is now getting back into activity after having children, I feel that these Rounders sessions is my time, my time away from the children and my time to chill out and have fun".

Lewis added: "The indoor season is in full swing at Penryn, with play taking place every Tuesday 5.30-7pm at Penryn College. There are plans to restart indoor at Truro and Newquay...watch this space!"

The Partnership is also delivering a Rounders Activator Course, Monday 11th December 6-9pm at Penryn College. This is a great opportunity to develop your Rounders leadership and organising skills!
