How great to see Lacrosse developing in Turkey. We as a family have been involved in Lacrosse for years, my husband Graham at Poynton Club in England and my son Mat is a lacrosse coach in US. I have an apartment in Turkey but never thought I would hear that they had a Lacrosse team. Hope we get to see some games in the Didim area at some stage.

Thank you for the kind words. Please check out for our annual international tourney.

Hi Guys, I ref’ed the 2011 Sofia Cup and was astounded to see a lacrosse team from Turkey and even more so that you played so well. I did get a chance to talk with a couple of the players, but not enough of them. I wish my new Turkish Brothers in Lacrosse all the best. If I can be of help, please let me know.

Thank you Buck!!!
