University of St Andrews Shinty Club

Shinty at St Andrews is more than just a club, it’s a close-knit community. Although our club’s roots stretch back to at least the 19th Century, the sport is much more ancient and was originally used as battle practice in Scotland and so the game inherently encourages camaraderie and finesse. We’re sure you’ve probably not heard of this sport, nor had most of us when we join first joined so we welcome players of all skill levels.
