Spencer Lacrosse Club: Project 2021

Spencer Lacrosse Club profile

Project by Spencer Lacrosse Club

We did it
On 14th May 2021 we successfully raised £22,110 with 218 supporters in 43 days

We are raising funds to maintain and then grow our lacrosse development programme despite the Club's set-backs with the Covid crisis.

New stretch target

Any additional funds raised above the initial target will go towards the growth and development of lacrosse at Spencer and within the local area, including equipment for our local state schools programme.


Through Sport England’s ‘Return to Play/Active Together’ scheme, we are crowd funding to maintain and then grow our lacrosse training and coaching provision for all our members, despite our Club’s loss of revenue and set-backs due to the Covid-19 crisis. We hope that you will help us with our "Project 2021" ambitions as we are all in this together.

At Spencer, we are determined to provide every member at every level with the best training facilities and coaching that we can! Project 2021 is to help the club recover from the Covid crisis and resolve its current problem of lack of pitch space and training facilities for our growing membership numbers.

Who We Are

1614772263_spencer_pic_1.png

Spencer Lacrosse Club (aka The Sparrows) was formed in 2000 and is now one of the largest lacrosse clubs in the UK. We have 4 men's teams, 2 women's team and a fast growing junior programme for girls and boys.

Our ambition is to provide the most welcoming and enjoyable lacrosse experience possible for everyone, from a beginner picking up a lacrosse stick for the very first time, to an experienced player looking to develop their skills.

Where We're Heading

2019 saw our club establish two senior women's teams and in 2020 we reached a major milestone of 100 junior members within the club.

Our aim is to continue to grow our women's and junior's teams, as well as to help other lacrosse clubs grow and develop their offering too!

Why We Need Your Support

Spencer Lacrosse Club's training and coaching provision has been put at significant risk by Covid-19, through a high fixed cost base (covering the groundsman's costs and maintaining our club house), lost revenue and Covid-playing restrictions.

In order to recover and grow from this we need your help to support our cost base and also help us fund additional pitch and training space to address our growing club. Without additional training space we are unable to continue to grow and develop our lacrosse offering to members of all ages.

Covid has put restrictions on the number of players that can train together at any one time, additional pitch space would help us address this issue and also provide us with additional facilities for future growth when hopefully sport can return to 'normal' in the future.

Our "Project 2021" Target

£20,000 will help us fulfil our commitment of growing our training pitch space and facilities for lacrosse in the South West London area and ensure our outstanding commitments are met from lost revenue.

All funds raised go towards the growth and development of lacrosse at Spencer.

When Covid rules allow, some members will be participating in a 21 mile walk/run to help raise funds for our Project 2021 Target and mark the club's 21st birthday.

Spencer Lacrosse are at a pivotal point in our development, and we have no intention of letting Covid stand in the way of the development of our club, the junior section and the general growth of lacrosse in the UK. Please support us by donating now.
