On Sunday 27th of September 2009, in association with Cambridge City Council and LIVING SPORT, Rounders England delivered the first ‘Rounders in the Park: Cambridge Festival’ on Parker’s Piece. The event included a mixed tournament for eight local teams, followed by a community taster session, and was a resounding success.
The glorious sunshine, combined with picturesque surroundings provided the perfect setting for over seventy people to enjoy playing some very exciting and competitive rounders in the centre of Cambridge. Participating teams came from a variety of different groups, including Abcam Plc representing the Cambridge Science Park, the Zoology Department from the University, and PE Staff from Comberton Village College – showing the kids how it’s done!
The teams were split into two groups and there were some very strong performances, with ‘The Cambridge Assessments’ ultimately coming out on top, finishing the day undefeated and being crowned Festival Winners 2009. A second event is being planned for April 2010 to launch the start of next season, and will be an even greater spectacle, with more teams involved.
In addition to the festival, Rounders England, Cambridge City Council and LIVING SPORT are currently working on several other development initiatives to create a sound working infrastructure for further rounders activity across the county.
Coaching and officiating courses have therefore been organised, with the first UKCC Level One Rounders Coaching Course taking place on the 15th of November and 6th of December 2009 at Cambridge Regional College.
The main target is to create a network of teams and community clubs to play on a regular basis in a friendly league structure throughout next summer.
We are therefore looking for volunteers to help drive this project forward, and who we will support through multiple courses and workshops. For more information, and to register your interest please contact Beth Wild, Regional Rounders Officer East on 07833051785 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
