The successful first running of the Surrey Showdown Women’s Development Tournament took place on Saturday 3 February at Normandy CC.
Four teams from across Surrey came together to take part in the inaugural tournament – Guildford Gators, Team Surrey Lacrosse, Royal Holloway University 1s and 2s – with a total of 42 participants.
The 8-a-side tournament was designed to give players that are developing a chance to play with potential future teammates and gain competitive match experience, giving freshers the opportunity to play with some more experienced players ahead of BUCS next season and additional playing opportunities for others.
The fast flowing nature of 8-a-side means that players need to exhibit and are able to develop a good all-round knowledge and ability across a variety of positions on the field.
Guildford Gators Ladies, who are in their debut season as a team, hoisted the trophy after defeating Team Surrey in the final.
The next Surrey Showdown is scheduled for May with the exact dates TBC – For more information on future dates, please contact Luke Wylie on firstname.lastname@example.org
