Rathbones Partnership
Rathbone Investment Management (Rathbones) has been a committed supporter of junior women’s lacrosse since 2011.

English Lacrosse and Rathbones were delighted to announce an extended partnership at the beginning of 2014, which would see the continued support of the annual Rathbones National Schools Lacrosse Championship (RNSLC) as well as title sponsor of the 2017 FIL Rathbones Women Lacrosse World Cup.

Not only has Rathbones’ support allowed us to continually develop the RNSLC they have also supported the Rathbones Community Expansion Programme.

English Lacrosse look forward to the continued partnership with Rathbones and what we can achieve together over the next few years in the development of junior women’s lacrosse.
