Performance Lacrosse (Men's)

 
 
 

Lacrosse players studying at the University of Nottingham join one of the UK's largest university lacrosse programmes, competing at the top level of British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues. The men's first squad have contested the national BUCS final twice in the last four years and several players are currently involved with the England national set up. 

Our lacrosse facilities for students are extensive; our teams train on a purpose-built 3G pitch opened in 2015 at our Jubilee Campus sports centre and performance facilities at the £40 million David Ross Sports Village include a High Performance Zone and Sports Injury Clinic.
