fun for the whole family

Rounders is one of the hottest sports in town thanks to a partnership between Burnley Leisure & Culture, Rounders England & Burnley Rounders Club to develop it locally.

From having no opportunities for adults to play this great team sport, we have introduced new initiatives in the area over the last seven years and now have over 450 women playing regularly.

Burnley Leisure and Culture and Burnley Rounders club proudly set an official Guinness world record for the most participants in a rounders match (118) back in March 2016 and the record stall stands to this date.

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.

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.

For more information or to book on any of the sessions, please call the team on 01282 477167 or email

Monday League Games at 6.30pm and 7.30pm at Towneley Park

Wednesday League Games played at 6:30pm and 7:30pm, at Towneley Park

Women’s Indoor Leagues

When? October – December and January – March each year.

The indoor version of the game is a fast paced six-a-side game where walls come into play. The rules are pretty much the same as the outdoor game but with bonus Rounders being scored by the big hitters reaching the back wall.

Held in the sports halls at St Peter’s Leisure Centre and other local venues, the indoor leagues take place on Monday and Wednesday evenings. With games starting at 7pm, 7.30pm, 8pm and 8.30pm
