Shinty 700

Introduction

Shinty is a traditional Scottish team sport played on grass pitches with long sticks called camans and a leather ball, and the Gaelic forefather to many modern sports such as hockey, ice hockey and golf.  

Teams & Competitions

The Shinty Club is made up of 1 competitive Men's Team and 1 competitive Women's team, both of which compete in the Scottish Student Sport (SSS) Saturday Shinty League. Unfortunately Shinty is not part of the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) championships.
