BUCS 8s returns to Bristol for 2018

English Lacrosse is pleased to announce the BUCS 8s Lacrosse Championships will return to Bristol for 2018 after the successful inaugural event in May.

The University of Bristol’s Coombe Dingle Sports Complex has been selected for a second year as the venue for the 2018 BUCS 8s Lacrosse Championships taking place on Saturday 28 April.

Lacrosse 8s is a skilful, fast and fun version of the full sided game and the Championships offer universities the chance to showcase high quality lacrosse while competing for all important BUCS points.

Helen Murray, English Lacrosse Competitions Coordinator, said: “English Lacrosse is delighted to be working with BUCS again in 2018 after the successful introduction of Lacrosse 8s to the programme back in May.

“8s is an exciting version of the game which offers a new playing experience for students, whilst providing more opportunities to play a growing sport.”
