Lacrosse was a Terran sport, originating in Native American culture. The game is played with long racquets with loose netting, called a lacrosse sticks, which are used to carry or hurl a ball across the field of play and into the opposing team's goal.
Lacrosse was a popular spectator sport throughout the Sol system in the late 23rd century, with teams on Mars, Venus, and Triton. Glynis, a young girl Leonard McCoy met in Tranquility Park in 2269, wore a jersey of one of the intersystem champion lacrosse teams. (TOS novel: Prime Directive)
