This is a huge achievement For the men as they challenged teams laced with experience and international players such as UCL, despite only have a few players who have played before university. Nevertheless, the men have continued to capitalise on their success, which has utlimately led them to firmly hold their place in the South Eastern 2B league. The men hope to continue to strengthen their team and recruit talented individuals in order to claim the top spot!
MEN'S 2ND TEAM
2019/20 - This year we were proud to announce we were trialling the new Men's 2nd team due to the success of the club and the demand for more men's lacrosse. Although the team was made up of mainly new and inexperienced lacrosse players, it didn't stop them from winning matches despite being in the same league as the Mens 1st Team. We are continuously recruiting apsiring, quick and sharp-minded lacrosse players to put our best 2nd team forward and feed into our impressive Mens 1st Team. If this sounds like you then please don't hesitate to contact one of our committee members about joining!
WOMEN'S 1ST TEAM
2019/20 - Following their most sucessful varisty to date, the womens 1s were keen to make their mark at the top of the leaderboard. After producing some strong results, the Womens 1st Team have made history by being promoted to Premiership B Divison! This is a first for the club, marking 2 promotions in 3 years. This year they hope to recruit determined players in order to keep improving their scores and lead the team to victory!
WOMEN'S 2ND TEAM
2019/20 - With this season being the Womens 2nd Team's second ever season, they were eager to continue their impressive performance in the previous year. Taking on fierce competiton, the womens team did not back down and kept their heads up throughout the season. With only 1 loss, the Womens 2nd Team are now being promoted to the South Eastern 2B division, marking their second promotion in their second ever season. Congrats ladies!
MIXED 1ST TEAM
2019/20 - This year marks an impressive year for the mixed team, beating teams left right and centre! From only winning 3 of their matches last season, the team came out this season more determined than ever. The mixed team have now claimed the top spot in the ELA South Division, despite being at the bottom of the leaderboard last year! The team has overcome leaps and bounds this year both on and off the pitch, and their success is truly something to be proud of! Our mixed team is always looking for new recruits and has an ever-expanding team waiting for new talent to join in on the fun!
This year marks a hugely successful year across all the teams. We are contiunuously looking for aspiring, talented and motivated lacrosse players to join one of our extensive teams.

Of course, playing lacrosse is only a small part of being a member of the Lacrosse Club. To conclude our Wednesday matches (and hopefully to celebrate our wins across the teams), the club joins and heads out to our Student Union. This is one to keep in the diary as it is guaranteed to be a good night, with the club joining for the sole purpose to have fun!
FRIDAY PARK BAR
After our Friday training sessions, both men and women's teams head down to Park Bark to enjoy a chat over a well lovely beveridge. This is a time where the teams can talk in a relaxed atmosphere, for those drinking and not drinking. It is also important to integrate both men and women's team, as Reading University Lacrosse Club prides itself on its unification of both women and mens teams.
Our fabulous social secs will be providing fun and exciting socials throughout the year. These will include both drinking and non-drinking events, consisting of themed fancy dress and activities. These are not ones to miss as we can integrate freshers into our welcoming teams while having a laugh at the same time! We also go on tour to Croatia every year, which is a chance to take our lacrosse sticks across the world and play against different universities across the country.
We look forward to welcoming you to our club!

Lax Love xoxo
