Impressions of the Beate Uhse Cup 2015

Last weekend the 4th Beate Uhse Cup took place in Würzburg!

A temperature of 28 degrees, 12 female, 16 male teams, a camping site, two fields and a hilarious mood are very good requirements for a perfect lacrosse tournament.

More than 300 players participated in the tournament and about 50 visitors came to watch some fiery games. The team with the furthest journey way was Aachen and some single players also came from Innsbruck and played in pickup-teams, they are the players with the furthest journey way.

Important points in the flow next to the plays were the tombola, which collected money for a new started team. Captain

Lax sponsored two 10euro-vouchers as winnings. The proceeds went to the ladies’ department of the Ingolstadt Panthers Lacrosse.

On Sunday the “Fastest Shot Contest” took place, which is also sponsored by Captain Lax with two 15euro-vouchers for the winners:

Lubica Kpcova with 82 km/h and Christian Heitmann with 133 km/ h. Congratulations!

In the tournament you can see a lot of exciting games, rapid fights and breathtaking goals.
