Rounders is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams.

Rounders is a striking and fielding team game that involves hitting a small, hard, leather-cased ball with a round wooden, plastic or metal bat. The players score by running around the four bases on the field. The game is popular among Irish and British school children, but has recently expanded with many women’s teams playing in leagues across the country.
