Welcome to University of Nottingham Ladies Lacrosse club! We welcome players of all abilities from complete beginners to elite players. In 2015-16, Ladies Lacrosse were one of the most successful sports clubs in the university. Our 1st team compete in the premiership, and last season finished 3rd. Our 2nd, 3rd and 4th teams compete in Leagues Midlands 2A, Midlands 2B and Midlands 3A respectively.
The club currently has 4 BUCs teams, giving more people than ever the chance to represent the University at lacrosse. All 4 teams train regularly and compete in matches every Wednesday. The 4s team is brand new this year, and provides returning students who were beginners last year with the opportunity to start playing competitively.
Our development team is for complete beginners to lacrosse to develop their skills in a more relaxed, non-competitive environment. Friendly matches are arranged for our development team against other similar university teams. Our development captain will also enter the team into beginners tournaments throughout the year. Many girls, from 1st year to 3rd years, start as beginners but end up playing for the 3rd or 4th team and really enjoy it!
1st, 2nd and 3rd Teams train 3 times a week with additional fitness sessions, 4th team trains 2 times a week and beginners train once a week.
In conjunction with the men's lacrosse club, we have a mixed lacrosse team consisting of first team players to complete beginners, which has matches every Sunday. Please join the mixed group on facebook for more info.
For many girls having played both lacrosse and netball at school, it can be a tough decision to choose which one to continue once starting university. For this reason, we have entered a team in the IMS netball league. This means that anyone wanting to carry on playing netball is able to do so, with weekly Saturday matches against other clubs and societies. It allows girls from all teams to play together and encourages a more integrated club.
We go on tour with the men's squad every Easter. An event not to be missed! Keep an eye out for the second and third years wearing Tour stash, talking endlessly about Tour and look through our photo albums to get a better idea! Look out for the tour group on facebook for more info.
We have weekly socials on Wednesday evenings and are very much connected with the boys club too. Often involving fancy dress, we go to bars such as Red Bar, which is in town and populated by many sports teams on a Wednesday night! After socials we head on to CRISIS. Please join our socials group on facebook for more info. Our social secs will often post the theme a week in advance to allow time to perfect costumes.
