A team of Prep 5 and 6 girls travelled to Denstone Prep. School at Smallwood Manor for the first rounders match of the season. It wasn’t quite the expected weather that rounders is usually enjoyed in, so it was a case of brave the elements!
The match consisted of two innings of 28 ‘good balls’ in that way each team has exactly the same number of balls bowled at them.
In the first innings, we looked a little ‘rusty’ and made a few mistakes in our fielding but I am pleased to say that this really improved in the second innings. We made two consecutive catches in the first two balls bowled and only just missed the third.
Batting skills looked good too, with full rounders being scored by Evie and Deleila and many scoring half rounders.
The final result was a win to Denstone by eleven rounders to seven and a half.
Well done to all!
