U11 Rounders Tournament at Rose Hill School
Rose Hill marked the end of an era on Saturday when we hosted the final ever U11 Rounders Festival. The day was very enjoyable, with some strong teams competing for the trophy, and in a fitting end to a relaxed fun festival, the final was tied with Dulwich College and Holmewood House sharing the title. In the past 20 years, over 200 teams have competed in this fun afternoon, which has included awards for both sportsmanship and the “Champagne Moment”. However, it was not a sad end to our wonderful annual event, as following the Games’ curriculum move from Rounders to Girls’ Cricket, this festival will now become an U11 Pairs Cricket festival with the opportunity to start a new chapter in the Girls’ Games department.

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.

Hidden beneath the 1960s bungalows winding through Tunbridge Wells’ “Lake District” and still faintly visible in the day to day life of nearby Rose Hill School are the remains of an old sports club which once attracted well-heeled local residents in droves.
