Here at Get in 2 in partnership with Burnley Rounders Club we offer a range of opportunities to get involved with the sport.
Rounders is one of the hottest sports in town thanks to a partnership between Burnley Leisure group , Rounders England and Burnley Rounders Club to develop it locally.

Current Rounders sessions include Women’s Outdoor Summer Leagues, Women’s Indoor Winter Leagues, ‘Just Play’ Rounders sessions, Mixed Rounders Competitions,  and the Annual Burnley Rounders Festival.

Our fabulous Prairie Sports Village has been selected as a venue for the Official Rounders England national trials where the elite players from around the country attend selection trials to represent their country in the sport.

Each year, our summer league winners play in the Rounders England festival held at prairie sports village where the locals get the opportunity to play against the under 14s. under 16s under 19s and senior England teams.

We provide training opportunities for coaching and umpiring and offer paid work opportunities to our coaches and umpires who help to support our Rounders sessions and Rounders leagues.

We are currently looking to recruit more teams into our leagues so please get in touch if you are a team or an individual looking to join a team.
