Rounders Development Competition 2023

3rd July 2023

Our final sporting development competition of the 2022/23 academic year took place on the 3rd July 2023 at Mitcham Cricket Club with 11 schools taking part.

The games were playing in tremendous spirit with it evident that all pupils were keen to enjoy the day and try their very best for their school. Following our Rounders Borough Championships the month before, it was great to be able to host a further rounders event in order to facilitate more children in the borough with the opportunity to take part and represent their teams. The Development Competitions were a new addition to the Partnership’s offer this year and all 14 events have been enjoyable and proved much needed across all areas of Merton and levels of competitive sport.

The day comprised of 2 groups with each team playing the others in that group before heading to a final placings match. Well done to All Saints and Singlegate for topping their group and to All Saints for winning overall 1st across the day. Thanks to the following 11 schools for making it a wonderful occasion with over 120 pupils taking part:

All Saints (Group A Winners)

Singlegate (Group B Winners)

Poplar (Group A Runner Up)

Liberty (Group B Runner Up)

Joseph Hood (Group A 3rd Place)

Wimbledon Park (Group B 3rd Place)

Holy Trinity

The Sherwood

Sacred Heart


The Priory

A final congratulations must go to The Sherwood for being voted REFSPECT winners by the other schools for their outstanding display of  determination and fair play across their matches.

Well done to you all and many thanks to Mitcham Cricket Club for hosting the event.
