Rounders is experiencing a resurgence. Six years ago, the Shropshire rounders league started with just five teams; it’s now grown to 12 teams with over 120 players. Having started as Shrewsbury Recreational Rounders, the league is now sponsored by Storage King Shrewsbury and managed by director Sarah Hopkins, who had a keen interest in the sport herself, saying, “Rounders is a fun sport, which some of the ladies haven’t played since school – it’s inclusive and accessible for everyone.”
