The Recreation Ground is in the heart of the beautiful world heritage city of Bath. Located just 5 minutes from the main bus and train stations, BathRec provides for a wide range of sporting and recreational activities including events.
Recreation for all in the heart of Bath
BathRec has been used by the people of Bath, the surrounding area and visitors alike for over a hundred years. A wide range of sport has been played on the grounds including croquet, tennis, football, cricket, lacrosse, volleyball and rugby - it has been the home of Bath Rugby since 1865.
In addition to sport BathRec has been the venue for numerous events including music and arts as well as the Bath Rotary Fireworks which will celebrate their 40th year in 2015. BathRec is the base for the Bath Half Marathon, a major fund raising event in the heart of the city, and a number of other community events.
BathRec is available for hire for a range of sports and activities and the Trustees have prepared a Strategic Development Plan to further enhance the opportunities for all - if you or your organisation would like to explore the potential we would love to hear from you.
