About | Rainbow Rounders - call for players

Hot shot rounders players wanted!

We’re looking for a team of hot shot rounders players to take on the might of Middlesbrough Football Club Foundation, Cleveland Fire Brigade, North East Ambulance Service, Hart Gables and TU Students' Union in our Annual Rainbow Rounders Competition.

Rainbow Rounders is in celebration of the Stonewall Rainbow Laces initiative, which sees national teams, leading clubs, top athletes, fans and grassroots players from across sport will show their support for LGBT+ people in sport by wearing ainbow laces in their sport shoes.

Last year MFC Foundation won the tournament and lifted the trophy so they will host the event this year.

Are you a bit of a hot shot with the rounder’s bat or can bowl like a pro? Can you catch and throw a ball and run like the wind? That’s great if you can but it really doesn’t matter if you can’t – it’s a bit of fun. Having said that MFC are practicing already so we need to give it our best shot! We’re looking for a team of 12 people to take part on Wednesday 25 April 2018, 1.00pm-4.00pm at MFC’s Herlingshaw Centre at Eston.

If you’re interested in being part of the team please email Ang Ramage - see my contact details above. There will be some practice sessions held before the event to hone your skills. You’ll get a free TU Rainbow Rounders t-shirt and a pair of laces to play in and hopefully we'll beat the rest and bring the trophy back home.
