Timo Samson, a reader and contributor from the Netherlands is here to tell us all about another kind of Beach Lacrosse… but this time it’s Netherlands style!
This year’s Den Haag Lacrosse Beach Tournament will again be held on the sunny beaches of Kijkduin! The weekend of August 27th & 28th is the date for lots of fun of sun & fun, LAX & more (and of course partying 24/7)… It’s the Den Haag Lacrosse Beach Lacrosse Tourney!
More than 250 players (with both men & women!) will do their utmost best to get to the Finals on Sunday, and we all hope to bring the famous “bokaal” (= dutch for trophy) home.
