- The bowler bowls the ball underarm to the batter who hits the ball anywhere on the rounders pitch. The batter then runs around the outside of as many posts as possible before the fielders return the ball to touch the post the batter is heading for.

- If the batter hits the ball backwards then they must wait at first post until the ball returns to the forward area.

- If the batter reaches the second or third post in one hit, the batting team scores half a rounder. If the batter reaches fourth post in one hit, the batting team scores a rounder.

- A batter can wait at first, second or third post when it is not safe to run.

- A batter is out if the fielding team catch the ball hit by the batter before it touches the ground or by touching the post the batter is heading to with the ball before the batter reaches it.
