Lacrosse began in England in as early as 1876 when Canadian groups began playing matches all around the countryside in order to promote the sport. Outside of North America, England is one of the most dominant lacrosse countries in the world and has many premier league, senior divisions, amateur, and university level teams scattered all throughout the country. 

At the national level, the English men's national team has won the European Lacrosse Championships (ELC) 8 out of the 9 times the tournament has been held and were runner's up the year they did not win. The English women's national team has also been dominant, winning the ELC 4 of the 8 times the tournament was held and never falling lower than third.

A ProActive Lacrosse Tour will take groups to some of the most famous locations in all of England including the capital, London. Sites visited in London will include Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Saint James Park, and Tower Bridge. Our lacrosse tours will take groups all across the countryside to visited other popular cities such as Liverpool and Manchester and play tough, level competition all along the way.
