In the history of the Franco/Belgian game of crosse, women hardly played a more than marginal role. It was far more the exception than the rule that references were made both in words and paintings or drawings to women holding a crosse club. For ages the game was considered (by men) as being unsuitable for women. Playing in the streets and in the fields in and around the towns or villages was not an acceptable environment. In the Middle Ages, cursing, swearing, drinking betting and fighting were very common.
Under Crosse you can find what we have discovered about women and the game of crosse. Happy reading.
