Lax teams in Oxfordshire?

Postby kara3010 Sun Aug 24, 2008 7:49 pm

Hi,

Quite a few of us are looking for a team to play for in the Oxfordshire area - we probably even have enough to start a team. Does anyone know of any? Thanks.

which part of oxfordshire....

there are no current teams apart from the school and uni teams!

get one started!!

your nearest clubs are gloucetser/reading/clubs in herts or birmingham

It's not the team with the best athletes, it's the athlete's with the best team

We're really keen to start one but would need help knowing which league etc we can go in?! There lots of ladies as we all went to school in Oxford but I have mixed experience from Cardiff and think we may be able to run that too. Do you have any advice about how we'd go about it? I think there's definitely a gap in Oxfordshire that could be filled. Most of us live in the Abingdon/Oxford area. Thanks.

Your first thing to do is to work out definite numbers, and try to get a commitment from all concerned. Next on the agenda is goals / facilities. You might be able to get these as part of a package if you strike a deal to train at a lax playing school in their gym / astros. From there you need to be looking at joining a league - details can be found at www.southlacrosse.org.uk

Kara,

If you hurry you maybe able to enter the SW league, which is prob the best one for you anyway!!

If you set up a club in the area, you could also get players from st H&K as well as from ox and brookes uni, so potential of lots of players who would want to play extra games against other teams.

will pm you with contact for sw league...we have just set up a club in birmingham playing in the sw league

Hi, I'm interested in playing lacrosse again in the Oxford area and wondered if you were still looking for players? I've only played occasionally since uni but would love to get back into it again.
