Our Beginners Lacrosse sessions allow those who are new to lacrosse to develop their skills in a more relaxed, non-competitive environment, getting a feel for the game. Towards the end of the year friendly matches are arranged against other universities. Many girls progress up into our competitive teams after starting in beginners in their first year. All equipment is provided at each session.

We are currently part of the university's Engage programme, where an additional beginners session is carried out each week for just £3 a session where any students can sign up and play lacrosse. These sessions do not require you to have a club membership. Our hope is for these engage sessions to increase the profile of the game and grow our lacrosse community, encouraging more people to become part of the club and get involved in lacrosse as well as sport in general. All equipment is provided.

Mixed Lacrosse combines the men's and ladies' lacrosse clubs, competing in mixed matches every Sunday. Mixed Lacrosse is a great way to meet other people in both clubs, to play some fun and light-hearted lacrosse. It is an adaptation of ladies lacrosse including added rules such as you can only hold the ball for 5 seconds and there is no tackling. The mixed team also travel to Liverpool every year on tour for a very fun and memorable weekend, at the end of the season
All information regarding Mixed Lacrosse will be posted on our Mixed Lacrosse facebook group:

We take part in the official Varsity Series where we go head to head against Nottingham Trent University. We have an amazing winning streak over the past few years, not only down to the players but the spectators that come out in our Green and Gold colours to support us, creating an amazing atmosphere
For many girls having players both lacrosse and netball at school, it can be a tough decision to choose which one to continue once starting university. Therefore, we enter a team into the IMS netball league, allowing anyone wanting to carry on playing netball to do so, competing in matches against other clubs and societies on Saturdays. It is also another great way to meet other girls across the club and girls from other societies.
Try and name a better way to celebrate a win on a Wednesday than heading to our socials and then CRISIS with all of the club. These weekly socials on Wednesday evenings, allow girls across the club to bond in fun games and fancy dress whilst also connecting with the men's lacrosse club and other men's clubs such as football and rugby. You must be a member of our club to attend socials.
All information on weekly socials from our Social Secretaries will be posted on this facebook group:

Every easter, our members form the men's and ladies' lacrosse clubs have the opportunity to travel abroad on our tour. it coincides with other sports and other universities all coming together to the same place for a week of fun on the coast, where you will make unforgettable memories.
In the past few years, we have done a lot for charity as a club and therefore have no appointed a Charity rep position, which is currently held by Emma Brown and Tameera Williams-Simpson. In 2019/20 we created some clothing merchandise with DBA sports to raise money for Kenya lacrosse. Kenya Lacrosse is a big part of our charity work as a club, including taking part in the K4Ks challenge and sending Christmas presents to them. This year we are looking to continue this work and hopefully send a group of our girls out to Kenya to help coach.
During April/May 2020 the men's and ladies' lacrosse clubs ran 3,900km, which is the distance to Croatia and back, which is where our tour would of taken place, to raise money for the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic.
We also take part in 'move for movember' and in the 'rainbow laces' charity project.

It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
