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 celebrated 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.
BathRec is owned and operated by the Bath Recreation Limited. The Charitable Company’s objects are:
The provision, with or without charge, of property in or near Bath (including but not limited to Bath Recreation Ground) for use as indoor and outdoor recreational facilities for the benefit of the public.
