Each team consists of 4 -6 Athletes. The distances and times recorded, top 4 scores count and are transferred to an excel spread sheet which calculates the points awarded for each event Each athlete will compete in all of the following activities, however there are adapted versions depending on their athletic impairment group. Helpers please feel free to help support or balance your athletes as they do the events. We will have leaders from Richard Huish College who will be able to assist. After last years' experience I know some athletes will require us to be creative with the way we adapt the activity to allow it to be accessible to all.

Field Events: Standing Long Jump, Speed Bounce, Hi Stepper, Target Throw, Chest Push, Javelin

Track Events: 6 x 1 lap relay and 6 x 1 lap hurdle relay

Please see below the link for all the activities and the adapted versions.




1) Each Innings will be 27 Good balls

2) Squad of 9-12

3) There is no specific batting order ie bowler, backstop, 1st base, 2nd base etc. There never has been, it may have been a local level interpretation. However the order must be declared to the umpire before the innings commences and they must stick to this order for the innings. If a game is more than one innings then the order can be changed each innings as long as the umpire is informed before the second innings commences

4) A live batsman can only be out if the base they are running towards is stumped. Therefore if base 4 is stumped while a batsmen is running between 1 & 2 or between 2 & 3 it has no effect on the game. Therefore once the ball has been released from 4th base the batsman can run on all the way around. They are NOT OUT and if they hit the ball in front they will score a full rounder. Or a half rounder if they did not hit the ball. (Obviously in the above scenario if the ball is returned to the bowler in the box before the batsman get to base 3 they can not continue running)

5) If a batsman stops at 3rd while base 4 has the ball and has been stumped and then continues to run on AFTER 4th base has released the ball then the batsman is not out but no rounder is scored
