The English summer is synonymous with all sorts of genteel sporting pursuits and this Wooden Rounders Set will allow you to indulge in one of the finest.
If you can muster 12 people you won't pass a more enjoyable afternoon than harking back to your schooldays for a round of this traditional English game, somewhat akin to baseball.
The set contains all you need – the wooden bat, soft ball, four posts to mark out your pitch and instructions in case you're new to the game or need to remind yourself of the rules. It comes in a rather nice gift box and you also get a handy cotton bag for keeping all the bits together.
It costs £19.99 from dotcomgiftshop here.
