With the summer holidays in full swing and the sun shining we decided to make the most of it and headed off on a Friday afternoon to play rounders.
Lucy helped organise us and teach us the rules (or what she thought were the rules) and after a quick warmup the game was soon underway. The Red team were in to bat first and got off to a strong start with Ryan and Tom racing around the field, it was very competitive and soon Tom’s urge to win became too much and he started lapping his own team mates!
Jordan showed he was lethal with a bat by throwing the bat backwards and the blue team having to duck to avoid being hit.
Sejal was supposed to be keeping score but got so caught up in the action she completely forgot so there was much debate on who was in the lead.
Katie was voted ‘woman of the match’ for her all round ability, she showed no fear diving to catch people out, rummaging in the brambles to find the ball and could throw the ball the length of a football pitch. She will be first pick for any sporting events we have in the future.
The fun only stopped when Jordan hit the ball in the hedge and after 20 minutes of searching it was decided we should give up and go and have a well deserved refreshment or two.
We headed back to Stephs house for a BBQ and a few glasses of sangria and those still had energy left headed out to Bristol to continue the celebrations.
We all agreed that it was one of the best Element events so far and are keen to have a re-match in September.
