Shrewsbury Recreational Rounders League

Now starting the third season, Shrewsbury Recreational Rounders League is returning again for 2015.  Continuing to grow and attracting new players, the league committee and team captains recently held a successful AGM to plan for this year.

Started in 2013, the league was set up by Shropshire Council’s Leisure Services to help introduce more people to the sport. Frequently played at school, many players returned to the sport due to fond memories of a fun and friendly game. Shropshire Council Leisure Services are still supporting the league, however more roles and responsibilities have been taken on by the committee and team players.

Matches will be held through the Spring and Summer at London Road Sports Centre, Shrewsbury with some initial sessions, allowing match and skills practice, taking place on the 14th, 21st and 28th April. The league is set to start on Tuesday 5th May and continue on a weekly basis. A mini handicapped tournament will then take place in August, based on the league positions held by each team. Sessions and matches will commence at 6:30pm or 7:30pm, a staggered start due to the number of teams already registered. 

New teams are welcome to join the 2015 season and anyone interested should contact the current committee via Leisure Services at Shropshire Council for further information. Please do not delay and contact us as soon as possible if you wish to play so that fixtures can be organised.

If individuals are interested in taking up rounders, you should come along to the start up sessions in April which will be held at London Road Sports Centre . Shropshire Council Leisure Services can pass on details of interested players to current teams who may be looking for additional players. If you cannot make the sessions in April, please email / contact us to register your interest.
