Cumann na mBunscol Mhaigh Eo will hold the inaugural Tom Higgins Perpetual Cup for Rounders on October 20th, 2017 in Breaffy GAA Club.

This tournament is limited to 12 teams. We are unable to accommodate larger numbers at this time. Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. For schools that are new to rounders, we recommend that you participate in our non-competitive “Rounders Introduction Day” which will be held later in the year.

There will be a group stage with 3 teams per group with the winners of each group progressing to the semi-finals. Matches in the group stage will be limited to 2 innings.

Group Stage matches will begin at 10am. Participating schools will receive an email with fixtures and will be required to submit their squad of 12 players in advance of the day.

We have a number of rounders resources on our website including the rulebook, coaching manual and our official score sheet:

Guidelines for October 20th:

  • One team per school
  • Max 12 players per squad – 9 players on the field of play, 3 subs.
  • Teams are to be of mixed gender i.e. 4 boys/5 girls or vice versa at all times. Failure to comply with this will result in a forfeited match.
