Sports Pitches and Gym

Children are most welcome in the club house. However, we regret that they are not permitted on the sports pitches and in the gym for health and safety reasons.


The Glasgow Academical Club is compliant with current legislation and enforces a no smoking policy within all buildings.


The club currently uses Ms Jen Dolan, who provides discos and karaokes at the rate of £150 per session, which is 7.00pm to midnight, £25 per hour thereafter.

Should you wish to use Ms Dolan's services the club will be happy to pass on her contact details.

You are also very welcome to use alternative entertainment of your choosing.

The non-refundable booking fee for the club is £100+VAT.

Bar Timings

On Friday nights, the bar will remain open until 1.00am.

On all other nights, the bar closes at midnight.

The club is happy to assist with applications for extended licences. These applications must be made 8 weeks in advance of the event.


All catering at the club is provided by the club's catering staff.

Should you require catering, some sample menus (389k, pdf) are available.

The club is also happy to discuss bespoke catering arrangements with you.

Set Up

Access to the pavilion prior to your function can easily be arranged, should you wish to decorate the hall.

We ask that blu-tac be used rather than pins or tape.

Arrival Drinks

Should it meet your needs, we can set up an arrival drinks table to welcome your guests at the main entrance hall.

We can supply a selection of cava, sparkling rosé and fresh orange juice. Alternative drinks can be supplied if required.
