Lydiard Park Academy
This is one of our fun competitions. There is no winning school trophy – instead we will be awarding individual medals for good play, sportsmanship, teamwork etc. This competition is open to Fortius member schools only.
A team should consist of nine players and up to six substitutes. Teams will bat for 1 inning of 20 good balls or until all batters are out.
One team bats while the other team fields and bowls.
The bowler bowls the ball underarm to the batter who hits the ball anywhere on the rounders pitch
The batter then runs around the outside of as many posts as possible before the fielders return the ball to touch the post the batter is heading for.
If the batter hits the ball backwards then they must wait at first post until the ball returns to the forward area.
If the batter reaches the second or third post in one hit, the batting team scores half a rounder. If the batter reaches fourth post in one hit, the batting team scores a rounder. A batter can wait at first, second or third post when it is not safe to run.
A batter is out if the fielding team catch the ball hit by the batter before it touches the ground or by touching the post the batter is heading to with the ball before the batter reaches it.
Please note this competition is only open to Fortius member schools (contact us to discuss membership!)
