Lacrosse is frequently cited as the fastest sport on two feet, and has a rapidly expanding pool of student players, who take up the sport at University. Originating from Native Americans, the team sport uses sticks to manoeuvre a small rubber ball between players in order to score past a goalkeeper. The rules of mens' and womens' lacrosse vary greatly, with mens' seeing full contact and with that, a range of protective equipment, and womens' being semi-contact.
The Lacrosse programme caters for a range of abilities, from those who are gaining representative honours for their country at international level, to complete beginners. The club has 2 men’s and 2 women’s teams currently competing in BUCS, as well as national competitions. Both squads boast a development team which offers opportunities for beginners to try out the sport and progress to the higher level teams.
Both men’s and women’s teams have been very successful in recent years, with many first place league finishes, BUCS cup and trophy golds, and National University Lacrosse Championship medals.
