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.
