|Governing Body:||Camanachd Assosiation|
Shinty is a team sport played using sticks called “caman” to hit a ball into the goal. It is mainly a sport of Scottish Highlands, but was formerly played in England and other areas in the world where Scottish Highlanders migrated. The sport was derived from the Irish game of Hurling and Welsh game of Bando but has its unique rules. The game was traditionally played during winters usually at the New Year’s Day but is now played in the summer season. The world governing body of shinty is the Camanachd Association and was formed in 1893.
