About Camanachd Association Shinty Senior League A 2021
After a years break due to concerns around the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, the Shinty Leagues are back in Scotland with the Premiership and National League condensed into three senior leagues of 6 teams each playing a 10 game schedule (double round-robin – home and away). There is no difference in playing level between the Senior A, Senior B and Senior C Leagues.
Shinty is Gaelic Scotland’s traditional version of Hurling. It is one of the forgotten Gaelic, Celtic or Atlantic Games like Basque Pelota and Welsh Baseball, played mostly in Gaelic parts of Scotland like the Highlands and Islands.
The game is very similar to Hurling, with a curved stick used to hit a ball through a goal, except there is no point-over-the-bar and less play in the air. The game is 12-a-side as opposed to Hurling’s 15-a-side. It is also known as Camanachd in Scottish Gaelic.
