Set-Up for Your Sports Lessons with Permanent Rounders Pitch Markings
Permanent rounders pitch markings from our collection of sports courts could bring inconvenience in outdoor lessons to an end, giving you more time to spend teaching and allowing your pupils more time to play the game, have fun with their friends and get their exercise.
Preparation is the often unmentioned nuisance when you’re taking PE, particularly when setting up for sports and other activities outside. You’ll need to ensure the school groundsmen have painted the lines as needed and that they’re still clear enough to see, and you may even have to take time out of your lesson in order to ensure that any posts, flags or other markers are set out correctly and then put away again. By bringing in a more permanent rounders field for your playground, you’ll never have to bother the groundsmen about paint, think about smears from mud or rain, or take away any fun time by having to set up and take down the posts or mark out the batting square.
Get in touch with us today and we’ll be delighted to help you pick the pitch that suits your playground and your pupils’ needs. We’ll even work weekends to ensure your planned purchase gets fitted on time, tackling the task around your schedule so that even if you need the pitch ready for PE that coming Monday, it will be ready for use.
Our Rounders Pitch Layout ‒ Base Markings Only
While this rounders pitch marking layout may appear the more simple of the two, it may be best for use in secondary schools. This is because older students with more developed coordination skills won’t need to rely on lines as much in order to run between posts, whether they have just batted and are heading for 1st post, or are on the verge of getting that rounder between 3rd post and 4th post.
Each post is marked by a brightly coloured circle, keeping them distinct and easy to spot for your game, and a batter’s square and bowling square are both marked out to give your pupils a place to stand, whether they are batting and ready to run or pitching the ball.
Our Rounders Pitch Layout with Lines & Base Markings
This more sophisticated-looking rounders pitch might be just what younger pupils need in order to learn how to play the game. As this product offers lines extending all the way around the pitch, marking the running area between the posts, it provides a great opportunity to teach players in earlier years the best and easiest method to head from post to post, keeping them from running too wide a circle into the fielding side and (hopefully) earning their team a few more easy rounders!
This field also comes with vibrant post circles to keep each point distinguishable from the rest of your playground, and squares to help mark out where your pupils need to stand to bat or bowl.
Our Rounders Pitch Dimensions Compared to Standard
The dimensions for both our rounders pitch types are 18.5 x 17.5m. This means that they are slightly larger than the given standard for a rounders field, which sets the distance between the edge of the batter’s square and 2nd post as 17m. It also means that your pupils will be burning off a little more energy as they run around the pitch.
Our products also come without a front line or backstop line included, which keeps the design compact and means that not all of your available playground space is taken up with one particular sport or game.
