Rounders Drill Demonstration
4 players, cones, posts, hoops, rounders balls.
The bowler (1) bowls the ball through the hoop. They must bowl from each back corner of the bowling box.
The batter (4) holds the hoop at a variety of heights and angles.
The backstop (2) takes the ball and throws it to the player on first post (3).
The backstop then runs to the 4th post to receive the ball from player 3.
The aim is to develop the fielders throwing skills, getting them to judge their throws and deliver them accurately.
The bowler also needs to judge the pace and height of their delivery to ensure a good ball is bowled.
The drill does not have to take place on a rounders pitch, as long as the distance is correct between the bowling box and batting square.
