It is played by all age groups, from national school children all the way to and including senior level. There are both mixed teams where Boys and Girls, as well as Men and Women can play on the same team, as well as seperate teams for Males & Females. As Rounders is a limited contact sport, it is perfect for both recreational and competitive play.
