hello, we are the essex blades lacrosse club
Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and in Europe. By utilising basic team sport concepts, Lacrosse is a fun and enjoyable sport with gameplay constantly changing every time. Endurance, agility and coordination are essential to the sport, but with 90% of players in past and present teams never having played before, it is clear anyone can pick it up in no time! By being highly spirited and determined to strive for the best, there will always be a position for you on the pitch!
