Words of the organizers

Beate Uhse Cup 2017 - Words of the organizerLast weekend, the lacrosse section of the freestyle gymnastics Würzburg was already organizing the Beate Uhse tournament for the sixth time. Twelve men and ten women teams from all over Germany fought for fame and honor. In total, almost 300 active players from Lübeck to Freiburg met for the start of the popular meeting of the lacrosse community.
In this edition, Würzburg Lacrosse was supported by three sponsors: Beate Uhse, the polish sportswear manufacturer Exize and the lacrosse shop Captain LAX.
The match for the tournament, which took place on the grounds of the FTW on the Mergentheimer Street, began on Friday evening with the best mood despite the unstable weather. On Saturday morning at 09:00 o’clock started the play enterprise.
This year the Würzburg women were two teams: a team supported by seven players from Bayreuth and a team consisting exclusively of Würzburg players. For these two teams, the main focus was on the integration of new and inexperienced players, who were supposed to gain practice experience for the upcoming league season. This task was also fulfilled on both days. In the end one had to be beaten by more experienced teams and very playful single players and found themselves in the tableau in the places nine and ten. The atmosphere in both teams, was great and the players got to know each other better. For the women division this is a successful start to the preparations for the first half of the 2017/2018 season. The controversial head of the club in gold was fortunately secured by the former players from Würzburg: the Pfister Sisters. The Würzburg men also had two teams. Here, thanks to a lot of efforts, an excellent second place could be won by several victories even against favored opponents, before one had to be defeated only in the final against the game community Munich/Stuttgart, which thereby secured the popular golden supporters.
The second Würzburg men team took a good seventh place. Not only players, but also family members and curious passers-by spent more time on the pitch than planned to watch the fast, physically and technically demanding sport. We are already planning the seventh Beate Uhse Cup next year and look forward to the coming season.
