One of the best things you can do when you come to uni is to take up a sport a great way to make friends and experience the fantastic feeling of being part of a team, so why not try something new and make that sport Mixed Lacrosse! You don't need any experience to join, in fact most people have never played before coming to Southampton so you'll be in the same boat as everyone else when you join up (of course experienced players are more than welcome).
We are a fun, sociable and relaxed club, if you can't commit much time but still want to come along every so often that's fine. Mixed Lacrosse is a fast paced sport played with both men and women on a team, where you use a stick, known as a crosse, to throw a hard rubber ball, about the size of a tennis ball, between players and attempt to get it in the opponent's goal.
We train every Tuesday evening 6:00pm - 8:00pm and Friday 4:00-6:00pm at Wide Lane. We have three teams, one for experienced players, one for intermediate players and one for beginners, that play matches most Sunday afternoons.
Wednesday night, like for most AU clubs, is socials night! Our socials provide a regular mix of fantastic events from beer pong tournaments to our class Wednesday night out to fancy dinners and balls and don't forget huge bar crawls with our good friends from Men's and Ladies Lacrosse! There's something for everyone at Mixed Lacrosse, whether you're the ultra competitive sporty type, far more socially minded, or anything in-between.
For more information and for details about our taster session we'll be at the Bunfight or you can join our Facebook group now and we'll answer any questions you have. Finally, don't be afraid to join if you've missed the Bunfight or taster session, new recruits are welcome throughout the year.
Just contact us using the form below or message our facebook page to let us know you're coming, then simply show up on Tuesday, easy.
