Welcome to UWE lacrosse!

Here at UWE lacrosse we aren't just a team, we think of ourselves as one big family, all coming together to play a unique sport, enjoy socialising and make some friends for life!

We have 2 men's teams and 2 women's teams all playing competitively in a league throughout the year!

We also have an amazing Lacrosse Tour around the easter holidays to various countries around Europe! This easter we went to Croatia for a week of relaxation, sun and lax fun, where we were joined by other sports teams from universities around the country. Our tour video highlights can be seen on our youtube channel in the link above!

Both experienced players AND people who have never played or tried Lacrosse before are encouraged to join our Lax family so come down and try it! 

We will have our very own stall at the freshers fair and our new to 2017 sports fair, so feel free to ask us more questions there or email We will be more than happy to help.


Men's Lacrosse

Men's Lacrosse is relatively new to the UK but is now the fastest growing sport for men in the country.

It has the best qualities of every sport! It combines the physicality of American football or Rugby, with the speed and agility of Football and Basketball.

All kit will be provided by the club so there is no need to go out and buy everything if you don't want! Just make sure you head to the watch it, try it sessions to have a go and meet the rest of the club! 

Check it out below by watching our 1st team boys winning the western cup this year!


  • James Hadley - Men's First Captain
  • Tom Taylor - Men's Second Captain 

Women's Lacrosse

Enjoy playing sport but want to try something new? Why not give Lacrosse a try? It’s a fast paced team sport and unlike the men’s version it’s non-contact! It’s commonly described as similar to hockey, yet you play in the air as opposed to on the floor.

Last year the Women's 1st team managed to get to the final of the Western Conference Cup, and came home with the trophy for the club, a proud moment for everyone.

The object of the game is to use a lacrosse stick to catch, carry, and pass a solid rubber ball in an effort to score by getting the ball into an opponent's goal.

  • Anna Kippax - Women's First Captain
  • Ele Oswin - Women's Second Captain

Keep fit, whilst having fun and making lots of new friends!


We look forward to welcoming you to our weird and wacky family!
