Münster Eights

We are inviting you to the first edition of the Münster Eights Tournament on the third weekend of July 2022: 16.07. – 17.07.2022. The tournament is meant to give all interested teams a good opportunity to prepare for the upcoming season and to enjoy a hopefully wonderful and sunny weekend full of lacrosse fun.

Tournament mode

We will play eight a side on smaller fields with the regular field rules. Each team will have 1 goalie, 2 defenders, 3 midfielders, and 2 attackers. There will be a 5 vs 5 around a goal. We will play in half penalties without a shot clock. It will be a goalie ball after each goal. Men will be allowed to have up to 3 longpoles on the field. Women’s fields will have an 8-meter instead of an 11-meter fan.

It will be a fun and fast game. 

We are aiming to have 5 guest teams plus a local team for men and women. The playing schedule depends on the number of teams, but we plan to have at least 5 games for each team. We will play on smaller fields with eight players incl. the goalies.

Also, we will draw each men’s team to another women’s team, which will make this tournament more fun and unique. The game results of the drawn women’s and men’s teams will be added. For example, if men A wins against men B 4:2 and women A loses 7:15 against team B, the final result for team A will be 11:17 in that round.

More information will be available once we are closer to the tournament.

Food and drinks

We will sell freshly grilled burgers, waffles, and drinks at the venue of the games during the day. No breakfast or dinner will be provided. If you need help finding a restaurant for dinner, let us know, we will be happy to help.

Tournament venue

The tournament games will take place on an astroturf field at: 

Sportplatz Hiltrup Süd Westfalenstraße 240

Players’ party

Besides the playing schedule, we would like to have an open get-together on Friday evening and let you know where we will meet. It would be useful to know when your team arrives on Friday evening and if you are interested in joining us for welcome drinks in order to sort out the venue. What kind of tournament would it be without a fun party for you to expand your ever-growing network of lax friends. The party will be on Saturday at Cuba Nova, near the main train station. We will have a separate area from 20:00 until 00:30. Afterward, it will mix up with all other guests.

Shops

There will probably be the opportunity to shop from one of the well-known Lacrosse shops.

The hostel offers sleeping accommodations (from 17€) in shared rooms in a central location. The H.ostel offers an alternative, also in a central location. You will have to book yourselves.
