One team we’ll be keeping a close eye on is HMRC Ipswich’s Rounders Team, formed of 12 Eastern colleagues, including Carolyn Tyrer Davies.
Carolyn started in HMRC and February and immediately signed up for CSSC, joined the local committee and has been organising events ever since.
She said “As soon as I heard about the games I knew I wanted to get involved. I quickly convinced some of my colleagues to join me in starting a rounders team. This is the first team from Ipswich that’s attended in a long time I’ve been told!”
Since the formation of the team, the HMRC colleagues have been practising on a monthly basis, which Carolyn claims have been great fun:
“Many of us hadn’t played since school so it’s been good fun remembering the rules and working together as a team. We’ve got much better at hitting and bowling as our training has gone on so we are looking forward to putting our skills into practice at the games."
“We are all looking forward to taking part and meeting the other competitors!”
The rounders event takes place on the 13th September 2019, at Loughborough University.
Good luck to all of our Eastern competitors in the following month!
