The game of rounders has been played in England since Tudor times and used to be a very popular pastime. Now it remains one of the most popular games among British and Irish school children. It helps you stay active and fit, while having fun with your friends and challenging the rival team.
Rounders is a great game for travellers, as you don’t need a big kit to start playing. Four jumpers, a bat and a ball will be enough. You can play rounders both outdoors and indoors which is really beneficial to the players on the road and this game can also be played on the grass or on the beach, which opens new opportunities for playing in new destinations. Although this sport is very non-intimidating, fun and sociable, it still presents a range of risks.
Just like baseball, rounders can often lead to rotator cuff, back, and knee injuries. Bowlers often suffer from shoulder and arm injuries because of repeated throwing, while backstop and batter injuries usually come from trauma to fingers, chest and face. Proper and equipment is essential for rounders safety, especially if you are playing it on a trip, as medical treatment can get excessively expensive abroad. It is important to warm-up and cool-down properly before and after the game and during the breaks to avoid any non-traumatic injuries.
