2010 World Lacrosse Championship’s Mascot

Our friends at the English Lacrosse Association gave us the rundown on the World Lacrosse Championship’s Mascot for this summer’s games. They originally ran a poll on their Facebook page with two options to choose from – Bulldog or Rhino.

The Bulldog, a British Bulldog of course, won hands down. The next step was to name it. Another poll gave three following options – Chester, Manny, and Crash, with Chester coming in first.

So Chester is the 2010 mascot; he’s a lacrosse lover but doesn’t play, he’s mischievous and fun but a bit clumsy.

Look out for Chester at a lot of lacrosse events running up to July.

Lacrosse Playground

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
