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 1 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.
As of the 2008/09 season, we will also be competing in the newly formed 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 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. The Blues will be looking to retain the Varsity trophy this year, having defeated Oxford in February 2010. This year's match will be played in Cambridge on the 26th February.
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.

Cambridge won 19-2
The Blues Lacrosse team travelled two hours to Reading and came away with the most emphatic win of the season so far. As the score line suggests, it was an entirely one sided affair and from the first whistle Cambridge outplayed their opponents in every position.

Cambridge won 9-5
The Blues lacrosse team made the long travel south to face main league rivals Brighton in a game that would play a big role in deciding the final standings. Last season Cambridge were narrowly beaten at Brighton and so the Light Blues turned up looking for revenge, as well as an opportunity to continue their fine start to the season.
