Fintry Sports and Recreation Club was founded in 1979 and currently has a membership of around 750. It is a progressive, modern club and the excellent facilities have attracted members from towns and villages many miles away. Nestled between the Campsie Fells to the North and the Fintry Hills to the South, the club has grown, becoming the hub of the village since Ruth Menzies of Culcruech Castle donated the playing fields to the village.
In 1979, the people of Fintry were asked, “If you had a sports club what would they like to see in it?” After much consideration, it was decided that rugby and squash would be the place to start. After all, Strathendrick Rugby Club was looking for a new home and the number of avid players of the up and coming sport squash was growing rapidly. The Club grew with the additions of the Fintry Riding Club, Fintry Football Club and later, in 1989, the indoor bowling hall completed the excellent community facility as it is known today. Built mostly by local volunteers, it has become a vital part of village life.
The facilities at the Club include a fully equipped gym, sauna and comfortable changing rooms, a top quality four-rink indoor bowling green, two well-maintained rugby pitches, two full sized squash courts, a pool table. For all your refreshments there is a well stocked lounge bar serving lunches and snacks from 8am to 11pm seven days a week and Friday nights it’s steak night!
Fintry Sports Club is also the home of the annual Fintry Music Festival that brings hundreds of music fans to Fintry from all over the country. The music continues all year with other concerts and the Fintry Accordian & Fiddle Association who meet regularly in the club for their sessions.

The club is also an excellent venue to hire for your own event. From birthday parties to wedding receptions, all events can be catered for. If you want to bring in your own people, we have a highly equipped, modern kitchen and bar. During the summer months, the indoor bowling hall is floored to make ready for all our musical events so it is the perfect size for a large party or wedding reception. We can also give you fantastic trusted contractors for dressing the hall, catering, entertainment and just about anything else you can think of. Smaller parties can use the bar and lounge areas.
