Sports Grounds

Formerly the Stothert and Pitt Recreation Ground, our sports ground facilities have been developed for use by students, staff, and the local community.

Known as the Bath Spa Sports Ground, the space is used by the University to offer enhanced sports facilities to our students, and increase local community use including the existing cricket and tennis clubs.

Developments and updates

Site improvements

In order to enable the site to be used at during the summer season, we have installed a temporary building to replace the former cricket pavilion which has been condemned due to subsidence, to make good the parking currently on the site, and alter the entrance from the main road to make it safe. 

Get involved

Are you a local resident, current student, member of staff, or thinking about coming to Bath Spa to study in the future? We’re keen to hear what you think about our project, and any suggestions or further questions you may have.

Hiring the facilities

Our facilities will be available for hire by local sports teams, personal trainers, community groups, schools, etc. Please note that while we work to improve the facilities, there may be periods where we can offer limited access.
