About Us

Shinty is a traditional Scottish sport now primarily played in the Scottish Highlands. Each player has a stick (caman) used to hit the shinty ball and the game bears some similarity to the Irish sport of hurling.

There are 7 university teams across Scotland, with the Strathclyde Universities teams being considered some of the biggest competition in University Shinty. We have both a men's and women's team, each with a history of success, often winning their leagues. Both teams are looking ahead to build on last years success and win both womens and mens SSS league titles.

The shinty club is fun and enthusiastic, and we know how to celebrate our success! We host social events across Glasgow so joining the club is a great way to see the city and get shown around by current members.

We are a hugely welcoming club with players of all abilities, so come along and give this great Scottish sport a try!
