Who plays? Number of institutions competing in Scottish leagues 5

What is there? An Indoor Small Bore Grand Prix operates through the winter, operating on a points system, incorporating six fixtures, and finishing with a Championship.

The Outdoor Championship is contested annually in a one-off match in Aberdeen in the spring with the Annual Ball.

From these events, indoor and outdoor SSS representative teams are selected and these teams compete against named teams from English and Welsh Universities.

The SSS Full Bore Championship takes place each May, at Blair Atholl, with the winners of this fixtures declared the Scottish Universities Champions in the discipline. In addition many Scottish Students take part in other matches – including those in local and regional areas, as well as a number of postal fixtures and private friendly matches.

When does all this happen?
