Shinty Club

Come and try Scotland's National sport.

Shinty is Scotland’s national sport, a high-speed, full contact game. We are a university side with a men’s and women’s team, who have both been extremely successful over the last few years. The women have proved untouchable at the top of the Scottish University League. The men are also stalwarts at the top of the men’s league. Both teams are serious competitors to be this years Littlejohn champions, the highest honour in University Shinty. We hold mixed weekly training sessions and additional fitness sessions for all abilities. We are a very friendly club and hold several events and tournaments throughout the year as well as some fantastic socials. The most notable being our annual Dublin tour where we compete in a Shinty Hurling game against an Irish team, which always proves to be an unforgettable weekend. Beginners more than welcome!
