The following players will be travelling reserves for the women’s squad: Torz Anderson, Anna Featherstone, Tilly Foster, Emily Gray, Liv Thomas.

The remaining squad members will continue to train with the squad in the run up to the tournament and form a reserve pool in case of injuries or withdrawls.

 “It’s a great honour for me to be able to announce the 12 players who have been selected to represent British Lacrosse at The World Games. The quality of the 23 players in our world games training squad gave us some very tough choices to make in reaching the final selection. However, that has resulted in what we believe is a strong Sixes team that will be able to compete successfully against the world’s best in July.

We have selected a team with lots of international experience. The squad has a blend of talents, each player bringing their own personal strengths. Collectively this will give us a dynamic and creative team with lots of options to call on, so that we are able to meet any challenges that we might face in Alabama.

We are very excited to see this team perform to their full potential and be amongst the medals at the World Games.”

Women’s Head Coach


“This is undoubtedly the hardest selection process that I’ve ever been involved in. The players in the training squad are extremely talented so choosing the final 12 to represent British Lacrosse at The World Games this summer was a real challenge. Each and every player demonstrated world-class levels of commitment and engagement. I’d like to thank them all for making our job so difficult. We’re really keen to keep the squad together and have invited all those not selected to continue to train with us as reserves until the World Games.

We’re very excited about the players who have made the final squad.  Stopping goals in the Sixes format is vital and we’ve got players who can do just that. I’m also thrilled to see what we can produce offensively so it’s a great combination.  Our training focus will now intensify as we count down to the Games in July. I very much look forward to working with all the players and the coaching staff to prepare for success on the world stage.”
