We have been overwhelmed with positive feedback and we are thrilled with the success of the event.
Absolutely none of this could have been possible without the dedication of the 300+ volunteers who played their part. Your passion is a true testament to the potential for the continued growth of the sport of lacrosse in England. I stood by as this amazing group of leaders came together and got the job done through the wind, rain and standard event chaos.
