Report

Skryne GAA made a trip to the USA in April, where the boys and girls played Softball matches against local schools – the Skryne boys and girls both winning one mmatch and drawing another. The Brookline coach requested a game of Rounders after their Softball games, which ended 11-all.

About Rounders-Softball International Rules

While nobody has yet come up with a viable Compromise between Rounders and Baseball or Softball to permit a genuine Compromise Rules match to take place, Internationals have taken place between Rounders teams and Softball teams whereby a match is played under the rules of one code and then a second match is played under the rules of the other code.
