There are many opportunities to play and watch Lacrosse at the Club. The two Men’s teams play in the Premier Division of the North of England League. Although Old Waconians came to Didsbury relatively recently they are now an integral part of the Club. The playing surface at Didsbury is excellent and the clubhouse atmosphere is great. Their name is derived from “Warehousemen and Clerks School” (WACS) which later became Cheadle Hulme Grammar School. Old Wacs enjoy professional coaching which is available to all player. They have a well developed relationship with Manchester City at “The Dome” and use their excellent facilities. This has enabled many members to attain representational honours at County and National level. Old WACS are active in recruiting young people into lacrosse through their promotion of ‘pop lacrosse’ in local primary schools which culminates in an annual tournament at the Club. New members welcome.
