Covid-19: Community Experiences

All Bath Rugby community events and experiences postponed from 17 March to 18 April following Government and RFU advice

In light of the uncertainty and following central advice, we have taken the necessary decision to postpone all community events and experiences including the below:

  • All academic delivery (curriculum and after-school coaching)
  • Dyson 7s Preliminary Tournament @ The Rec on Saturday 28th March
  • Community Day (Grassroots Rugby Showcase) @ The Rec on Monday 6th April
  • Easter Residential @ Marlborough College from 7th to 9th April
  • Easter Camps based at the below grassroots Rugby Clubs
    • North Dorset RFC on 6th April
    • Chippenham RFC from 7th to 8th April
    • Swanage & Wareham RFC on 9th April
    • The Rec from 14th to 16th April
    • All Community Touring Groups at Farleigh House or the Rec

Everybody at Bath Rugby recognises the huge amount of work that goes into organising these experiences for grassroots clubs and schools.

All grassroots clubs are run by volunteers that sacrifice a huge amount, making this an enormously difficult decision. However, our main priority is to protect public health and prevent further spread of Coronavirus and we know this is therefore the right decision. It is vital we take every measure to ensure safety of all participants as well as their loved ones.

In addition to the Club statement made yesterday evening, all community matchday experiences for the below matches will be postponed and rescheduled:


Saturday 21 March

Bath Rugby v London Irish

The Rec 

Saturday 18 April

THE CLASH - Bath Rugby v Wasps Rugby
