Lacrosse is a team sport, using a stick with a net on the end, the aim is to catch the ball and throw it into your opponent’s goal.

Why is it good for me?

Lacrosse is a great cardiovascular work out, and a great way to make friends and meet new people.

How much does it cost?

Costs vary between clubs, and you could pay per session, or get a membership. Talk to your local club about their prices.

What equipment do I need?

To get started, you just need comfortable clothes, trainers and a gum shield. Clubs will provide you with sticks and balls.

If you choose to progress or compete in the sport, you may want to buy your own lacrosse stick, which starts from around £30. You may also need a club membership, and a team kit. Your local club or coach will be able to advise you on this.
