Football Rounders

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


A game played like normal rounders but with a football instead of a bat and ball


A football, four cones and two hoops (to mark the bowler and batter area)


1. Split the Beavers into 2 equal teams. One team fields first for an allotted time and the other team bats
2. Mark out four bases (using the football cones) in a square with a bowling area (hoop) in the centre and a batting area (hoop) in the middle of one side
3. The bowler roles the ball towards the batting area and the batter kicks it as far away as possible. They have 3 bowls and then they have to run
4. They must try to run around the full square without the fielding team stumping the post they are running towards. If they don't touch a post before the ball hits it they are out
5. They are also out if the ball is caught off their kick without it touching the ground
6. If they do not kick the ball and still run then the batter can only run to the first base.
7. As the team takes turns to kick, the batting team on the posts must continue their journey around the 4 cones before joining the back of the batting queue
8. If two people are on a base then the last person to get there is out
9. Points are scored for making it all the way round in one go (a rounder)
10. The team with the most rounders at the end of the game is the winner
