Our project

The University of Essex Mixed Rounders team is aiming to raise £600 to buy new kit for both the 1st and 2nd teams. Currently we have kit that does not represent the true Essex Blades colours of Black and Red, so we feel that new kit incorporating this colour scheme will make our club feel more a part of the sporting community. Furthermore, there is not enough of the current kit for each player to have their own top during a game, so we often find that some players have to switch tops in-between the game, which can be quite a nuisance. 

Our story

  • This is our second year as a sporting club at the University of Essex.
  • Although we are not a British Universities & College Sport (BUCS), we are involved in a local league of neighbouring universities, where we have been ranked 2nd out of 5.
  • This project is important to us, as we feel that it will finally solidify us as an Essex sport. By having uniform that represents the Essex Blades, it will promote our university when we attend away games, as well as uniting us with other sports at Derby Day, an event where sporting teams at Essex compete against the sporting teams at UEA (University of East Anglia).

What are you donating towards?

  • Our main project is focused around funding for a new kit for the Essex Mixed Rounders team. If we manage to reach our target, the money will be put towards that.
  • If we manage to reach over our minimum target, this money shall be put towards things that will help the club, for example travel costs for away games, or new equipment, such as bats and balls.
  • Through the 'Updates' tab, you will be able to keep an eye on posts we make, as to where we are in terms of reaching our goal!

Roughly, the cost of new uniform will come in at around £547. Below is an idea of what the new uniform will look like:
