Welcome to the University of Strathclyde Shinty Club!
Shinty is a traditional Scottish sport mainly played in the Highlands of Scotland.
There are 7 university teams across Scotland, with the Strathclyde University teams being considered the biggest competition. We have both a men's and women's team, each with a history of great success, often winning their leagues. Both teams are hoping to improve on last years season after narrowly missing out on taking the league cup home.
The shinty club is fun and enthusiastic, and we know how to celebrate our success!
We are a hugely welcoming club with players of all abilities, so come along and give this great Scottish sport a try!
