Call for teams to have a ball at tournament

LADIES from across Lincolnshire are being encouraged to enter a team into this year’s Beach Rounders Championships.

The tournament will raise money for Lincolnshire Elite Athletes and will be held on Saturday, August 11, at Skegness Beach from 10am to 4pm.

Ladies, aged 14 plus, are invited to enter a team of nine (seven minimum, 15 maximum), and the entry price is £20 per team.

Rachel Belcher, rounders development officer at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, said: “The Beach Rounders Championship is a fun and friendly competition.

“We want as many of our teams from across the county to enter but you don’t have to play in a league to take part.

“All the profits from the tournament will be donated to the Lincolnshire Elite Athlete Programme, so we really are encouraging as many women as possible to take part.”

As well as the Beach Rounders Championship, there will also be a chance for children and anyone else to have a go at the sport, so it really can be a family day out.

The deadline to enter your team is Friday, July 6.
