It may surprise you to learn that there are a few other sports using lacrosse equipment. In recent years it has became increasingly popular to use lacrosse sticks to coach field hockey goalkeepers while facing drag flicks.
Ever seen bike polo? Neither had we until about 10 years ago when we started getting a number of calls and emails from bike polo players looking for lacrosse gloves!
Another weird use for lacrosse gloves...sparring for sword fighting in HEMA. Although not all people recommend them and from we'd definitely not suggest buying lacrosse gloves because sword fighting is not what the brands have in mind when designing them. If you are into historical sword fighting then there are gloves out there which suit your needs way better.
