Everyone knows that students love to socialise on a regular basis – even if it is down at the student bar! However, even the future brains of a nation need a little physical exercise and fun every now and again. Rounders is perfect for getting students running and smiling on a regular basis, whilst also allowing them to meet new friends along the way. Fun and enjoyment are an essential part of student life, so games should be ‘adapted’ with this in mind.

The creation of a rounders team during Welcome Week would be a great way for freshers to meet people and socialise regularly. For those who want a more informal game, rounders can be played as the perfect accompaniment to student BBQs, picnics or parties. The game could also be adapted to appeal to the student’s sense of fun and humour... just imagine what a fancy dress game of Cavemen vs Superheroes might look like!
