Lacrosse legacy programme launched in Surrey as 3,500 girls compete in the finals of the Rathbones National Schools Lacrosse Championships.
Like the band of the Coldstream Guards at the FA Cup final, it felt appropriate that the Household Cavalry rode ahead of us as we walked through Hyde Park to take on the English Lacrosse first VIII. The occasion was after all similarly auspicious and high profile.
Rathbones sponsorship of lacrosse is enabling more people to play the sport and encouraging young people to get out and be active.
As part of our support for lacrosse in the UK, we were delighted to sponsor the FIL Rathbones Women’s U19 World Championship, which was held in Edinburgh between 23 July and 1 August. It is fitting that the championship is being held in Scotland, where lacrosse was first played in the UK 125 years ago.
Lacrosse originated with the Native Indians of North America and was played under various names including da-nah-wah’uwdsi, translating to ‘little war’ or baggataway, meaning ‘bump hips’.
English Lacrosse are delighted to announce that Hannah Townend from Chalkhouse Green, South Oxfordshire has been selected as the winner of our 2017 FIL Rathbones Women’s Lacrosse World Design the Mascot Competition.
Why we have chosen to partner with English Lacrosse.
The UK’s largest school sport event Rathbones National Schools Lacrosse Championships (RNSLC) took over Surrey Sports Park over 4 days last week, 27 February to 3 March.
Rathbones has increased its commitment to English Lacrosse by becoming the title sponsor of the 2017 FIL Women’s Lacrosse World Cup.
