SPORTS fans are being rounded up for good old fashioned games of rounders in the new year.

In partnership with England Rounders and the Oxfordshire Sports Partnership, GO Active will be offering two courses for people to attend in January and February.

The courses will be coming to The Oxford Academy for four weeks from Saturday, January 12, to Saturday, February 2. The sessions are open to anyone over the age of 16 years. Coach Sarah Norman said: “We are hoping that through this course we may re-ignite people’s passion for the sport.

“It would be fantastic to also find people that are keen to pass their passion and expertise onto others and who may be interested in becoming a rounders activator in the area.”

England Rounders are also holding a three hour course for anyone aged over 18 who is interested in leading some informal sessions in their community or workplace.

The next training will take place at Blackbird Leys Leisure Centre on February 9 from 9.30am to 12.30pm and costs just £15 per person.
