The DMU Lacrosse Society is looking to make the sport more well-known

By Callam Banghard

The DMU (De Montfort University) Lacrosse Society is looking to recruit more students into its ‘family-like’ community.  

The society wants to make the native American sport lacrosse better known and allows men and women to make new friends whilst trying something new and different.  

The society is open to all current DMU students, even students who have just started their university careers, and anyone is eligible regardless of their background or culture.

Its members aim to be inclusive to all but warned the sport can get quite physical, more so for the men than the women. One member said: “The sport is quite physical for men but not quite as physical for women.

“For men it is a contact sport, for women it is a non-contact sport.”

They aim to ensure that no-one is left out and that everyone can get involved whether they are playing the sport for the first time or have played it before.  

In addition, the society has regular events such as its Soar Point Sunday, where many different students and members of the society can join and have a fun time together, in the pub in The Newarke, Leicester.  

“We have Soar Point Sunday, where we do activities such as trivia quizzes and we are connected like one big family.”

The society said it has something to offer everyone, whether you just want to play the sport casually, competitively or make new friends and have a fun time.  

If you are interested and want to get involved with the society, then you can follow its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages or visit the De Montfort Students’ Union website for more information.
