Glasgow Hutcheson's and Aloysians Rugby Club (GHA) plays at Braidholm in Giffnock. The club will be playing in Premier 3 in season 2011/12.

The club aims to be part of the community and apart from the Senior teams there is a strong Junior section with players as young as Primary 1 being involved on a weekly basis. It has provision for, and hosts, numerous social and fundraising events (not just rugby related) from hiring out the function room and facilities to the annual fireworks display on 5th November.
