About

Welcome to CULC.

The men’s lacrosse team was founded in 1882, making it the oldest university lacrosse club in the United Kingdom, and one of the oldest clubs in the world. Almost ever since, we have been playing in the southern English lacrosse leagues, currently competing in the South of England Men’s Lacrosse Assosiation (SEMLA) East 2 Division every Saturday during term time. We also compete in the SEMLA Intermediate Flags (knockout) competition. In both SEMLA tournaments, we are able to field non-university members, so please contact us if you’re interested in playing.

We also compete in the BUCS men’s lacrosse tournament for university sides, playing on Wednesday afternoons in the Midlands League. We hope this will enable us to get far more players involved and bring a greater depth to the squad than previously possible.

The men’s team is always looking for keen newcomers, irrespective of previous experience. If you want to get involved, don’t hesitate to contact us.

The highlight of our season is the annual Varsity match played against Oxford University. The inaugural Varsity match was played in 1903, and the light and dark Blues have competed for the Varsity trophy every year since, breaking only for the two World Wars. This makes men’s lacrosse the oldest half blue sport in Cambridge, awarding up to ten per year to players who distinguish themselves in the Varsity match. This year’s match will be played in Oxford on the 22nd February.

CULC also possess a dedicated Alumni Association, The XVI Club. Established in 2010, the club takes its name from an old society within the lacrosse club, and aims to provide a network for CULC alumni as well as to support the lacrosse club.
