A Lacrosse player from Sealand will be swinging into action this summer thanks to a donation from Redrow.

Evie Tipping, 19, will be travelling to Prague to represent Wales in the U20 European Championships this July.

Evie, who started playing Lacrosse at age 11, received her first cap for Wales last year and has had her sights set on the championships ever since.

“I’m really looking forward to this competition as it has been a long-term goal of mine to represent my country on the international stage,” said Evie, who is her second year studying Biology at Durham University.

“As one of the older players in the team, it is important to me to bring leadership and maturity to the team and encourage us to perform to our highest possible level.”

Evie will now spend the coming months at a training camp in Cardiff, whilst also receiving game experience playing at different locations across the country.

“Unlike some other international sports Wales Lacrosse does not benefit from any significant funding and as a result the cost of the training camps and the championships have to be covered primarily by the athletes themselves,” said Evie.

“I’d like to say a massive thankyou to the team at Redrow for helping me towards realising my goal of attending the U20 European Championships later this year and flying the Welsh flag on an international stage.”

Sarah Weaver, marketing manager at Redrow NW, added: “We are so pleased to be able to help Evie on her way to the European Championships this summer. We wish her and the team all the very best.”
