After the postponement of the originally scheduled 2018 Rathbones National Schools Lacrosse Championships, English Lacrosse has been working constantly over the last week to attempt to rearrange the tournament and deliver a memorable Championships for all involved.
We are delighted that the Under 19A Tournament will now be taking place on Sunday 11th & Monday 12th March at Wycombe Abbey School.
The response and cooperation from schools in this challenging period has been magnificent and we are thrilled that 48 schools are still able to compete at Wycombe Abbey.
The Under 19B tournament has also been rearranged for Saturday 17th March at Rendcomb College, Cirencester, to be followed by the Under 15A tournament at St Swithun’s School on the Sunday 18th March.
Unfortunately, it has not been possible to rearrange the Under 14 and Under 13 age categories for this year.
After exploring the options available to us and due to the extremely short time period available in which to run the rearranged tournaments, it was concluded that it wasn’t possible to fulfil the tournaments this year.
Although it is disappointing for those girls who expected to be involved, we hope that they will be able to return to the Championships next year with the same levels of determination.
We are truly grateful for everyone who has offered support over the last week and we are now looking forward to some top-quality lacrosse over the coming tournaments.
