  1. Rounders is played by two parties six or eight on each side and they get a bat and ball and they leave a stone a distance from them and one person will throw up the ball and one from the other side will hit it with the bat and if he miss the ball he will have to wait until another will hit it and if he hits it they both will run and leave their foot on the stone and if the other party hit them before they leave their foot on the stone they will be beaten and the other party will take their place and do the same and so on
