Established in 1912, Buckhurst Hill are one of the oldest teams in English Men's lacrosse, formed when members of Woodford Lacrosse's 3rd team felt it would be better to found a new club in the county. Still going strong today, we have a large pool of players but are always looking for new players who are keen to either pick up a stick for the first time or to improve their skills.
We are perfectly situated just inside the M25 towards the greener end of London so easy to get to from anywhere in the City (Central Line) or for those of you who live in Essex. We play in the following South East of England Men's Lacrosse (SEMLA) leagues:
East North (main league - covering London, Essex, Hertfordshire and Surrey)
London 3 (local league - a smaller league covering just London)
Flags (the knock out cup competition that covers all divisions in SEMLA)
Various Summer tournaments (including Reading 6s and Bath 8s)
The season takes place between September and April so is therefore a predominately winter sport. As we play on grass, it is recommended to play in short studs/moulds or cleats in the drier months, and long studs in the wetter months.
Games are played on Saturday afternoons with training sessions midweek at both London and Essex locations. Out of season training is held at the club on Sunday mornings, along with occasional friendlies at home or away grounds.
