Lacrosse Scotland are delighted to invite you to participate in the MacRobert 2017 tournament. The MacRobert is Scotland’s annual flagship lacrosse event. The event is quickly becoming one of the biggest tournaments in the United Kingdom. In 2016 we saw Norway’s National Women’s Lacrosse Team, Timperley Lacrosse Club, London Blues Lacrosse Club, The Leeds Penguins and Scotland Men’s International side compete over the weekend. We also had our finest Scottish clubs competing. Each year entries grow along with the demographic spread. Lacrosse Scotland is growing the event into one of Europe’s finest. As a result, this will be a tournament of great standard and competitiveness. I am sure you will not want to miss out.
This season’s tournament will take place on Saturday the 6th and Sunday the 7th of May 2017. The tournament is hosted in Edinburgh, at Peffermill Sports Complex, where the F.I.L Rathbones Women’s U19 World Championship was hosted in 2015. We hope this world class venue will attract teams from across the UK and Europe to participate. Come and enjoy Edinburgh whilst you are here. The summer dates ensure the capital of Scotland has various activities and sightseeing opportunities for you all to enjoy whilst you are here.
Saturday will be the men’s and women’s tournaments. The Sunday is a great opportunity to enter a team into the mixed event. Last year Norway combined with Stirling University and Robert Gordon University, ensuring there was a friendly and encouraging atmosphere after a tough day of competition on Saturday followed by city sightseeing. As a result, we encourage you to enter Sunday’s tournament along with Saturday’s tournaments. Don’t worry if you feel you would be shirt of players on the Sunday, like last year, we can combine you with another team, ensuring a sociable yet competitive environment.
Entry forms which can be found attached to this email have to be returned by the 13th of February 2017 to: email@example.com
Due to the high level of interest the tournament receives, we will have to close entry once each tournament has reached maximum entries. As a result, entries will be based on a first come first served basis.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
Don’t miss out on the MacRobert and spread the word #growthegame #MacRobert2017
