Aussie rules football
With team names like The Bloods and The Bodysnatchers, some may be put off by this mix of rugby, football and no-holds barred violence. Don’t worry, though, newcomers of all ages, skill levels and experience are always welcome, and with teams in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen there’s no excuse.
