Welcome to the Women’s Lacrosse Club, one of the leading sports at NTU. Experience training twice a week by a qualified experienced coach no matter what level you play at.
We train and play at the 3G pitch based at Clifton Campus and run a number of social events during the year. Our Men’s, Women’s programmes work together on charity fundraisers and community projects throughout the year.
We have multiple teams on both the Men’s and Women’s side of the club, including Development squads for complete beginners looking to get into the sport during their time at university.
We focus on both high performance and participation, so whether you are looking to play sport to a high standard or be a part of one of the biggest social societies at Trent, NTU Lacrosse has something for everyone.
