Both our Mens and Women's teams play on Wednesdays and train on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays (training on Wednesdays when there is no match) and a specific fresher training date TBC. There will also be desginated Fresher training as an introduction to the sport, quickly intergrated into the other sessions playing along all memebers. As a club we love to play friendlies for to give everyone an opportunity to improve skills and learn more about the game. Players of all abilities are welcome. Beginners are given assistance at trainings by experienced players. For more information on training please contact your 2023/2024 captains (Please read below).
UPLAX meet up every Wednesday night for our weekly socials; usually starting at a lacrosse members house and then progressing on to SU, Switch, Fever, Popworld and finally ending up in Revolution. Most socials have a theme and all members of the club, regardless of whether they play or just like to socialise, are welcome to come. We have introductory socials at the start of the year to introduce new members to the club and all other members. For more information on socials contact your Men's Social Secretary Jim Lidderdale and your Women's Social Secretary Zoe Smith.
We run a spring tour with the ILOVETOUR tour company previously going to Spain and Croatia. Over the summer, we attend Bluesfest, a weekend lacrosse festival bringing a men's and woman's team with us. Over the past successive years, it has been great fun, with the chance to meet lacrosse teams from across the country. We have a huge Christmas party and dinner to end the first term, hiring out a venue which leads to an amazing night out. At the end of the year, we host an Awards Night as a final goodbye to our final year members. We have a strong focus on supporting both national and local charities through many fundraising events such as charity tournaments and pub quizzes. We take on many volunteering roles throughout the year and compete in intermural tournaments thus helping us to intergrate with other sports clubs.
As always, our committee members are happy to answer any questions throughout the whole year. See below a list of your 2023/2024 committee. Any memberships queries please contact your President: email@example.com or contact the club email: firstname.lastname@example.org
