The Glasgow Academical Club was founded in 1866, and although much has changed since then its aims remain the same, as a place where friendships can be maintained and strengthened, and to promote the playing of cricket, rugby, hockey, and other sports, through The Glasgow Academical Sports Club.

The Sports Club is open to all, including non-playing/social members, and the club enjoys excellent facilities at New Anniesland, with the Clubhouse available for functions for both members and non-members.



The Glasgow Academical Club has a proud sporting tradition that spans over 150 years. From the upper echelons of competitive sport to social teams, there is an opportunity for all skill levels to get involved.
