League for local ladies

LADIES in Gainsborough are being encouraged to join a rounders league, running from August to September.

The sessions will start on Thursday 2nd August 2012 and the league will start a few weeks later; giving ladies the chance to have a go at the sport before committing to a league.

Rachel Belcher is the Rounders Development Officer at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership.

She said: “The league has been established following the success of similar leagues in Lincoln and Market Rasen where over 170 ladies are regularly taking part.”

“It’s such good fun and a great evening out. I would encourage anyone with fond memories of rounders at school to come and have a go.”

Ladies can attend individually, in a small group or in a team of nine – and Rachel will organise teams on the night.

A member of the Lincoln Ladies Rounders League said: “I didn’t think it was my thing when I first heard about the league but I’m delighted I gave it a go.”

“I have missed it over the winter and can’t wait to start up again this summer.”

The first session in Gainsborough will be on Thursday 2nd August at Trent Valley Academy, starting at 7.00pm, and will run every Thursday. Anyone aged 16 plus is welcome to join.
