Shinty is about two teams striking a small leather ball with a curved stick known as a caman.
In shinty, a player is allowed to play the ball in the air and to use both sides of the caman. The caman may also be used to block and to tackle, although a player may not come down on an opponent’s caman. Players may also tackle using the body as long as it is shoulder-to-shoulder.
The game can be played by children, men or women and, with the ball travelling at speeds of 100 miles per hour, can be quite an experience for both players and spectators! Top
