Bath Rugby is committed to providing an inclusive and enjoyable experience at The Rec, accommodating spectators with any form of impairment.
The Rec offers wheelchair positions, easy access seating, toilet provisions and Accessibility Stewards to help enhance your visit on a matchday, as well as other services.
We understand that not all impairments are visible, and we are committed to working with supporters to accommodate for individual and unique requirements.
Bath Rugby’s Accessibility Support Scheme enables supporters with an impairment, or other specific requirements to have access to the facilities and services they require, to enhance their matchday experience. It is important that these services are protected for those who need it.
To join the Accessibility Support Scheme, please complete an Accessibility Requirement form, where you will be asked details of the services you require and supporting documentation before purchasing tickets.
Supporting documentation can be submitted by sending us copy by email or post. If you are not in receipt of any of the accepted documents, please send us any evidence you do have which will be assessed on its own merits. Each application will be assessed on a case by case basis as everyone’s requirements are unique.
Once you are part of the Bath Rugby Accessibility Support Scheme, you may have access to the following services, as required:
Please contact email@example.com if you require more information.
Personal Assistant Tickets
Available free of charge for those who require a Personal Assistant.
You can gain access to a Bath Rugby Accessibility Passport (an accredited lanyard) which allows you to queue jump at the entrance gates and bars. It also allows you to enter the ground at any gate.
Specific Viewing Areas
Including wheelchair positions and easy access seating.
Available for those with hearing or sight difficulties.
The Rec is in close proximity to both Bath Spa Train Station and Park & Ride drop off points. All Great Western trains and Park & Ride buses are wheelchair accessible.
Parking is limited at The Rec, but we do our best to assist where possible. Where we cannot offer parking, we can advise on local car parks, drop off points or public transport.
These are available in each stand, ask a steward where the nearest one is, or locate on the map.
Drink Delivery Service - Wheelchair Users
Bath Rugby can support in taking your drinks order from your viewing position, to avoid any difficulty in accessing bars at busy times.
Bath Rugby matchday programmes are now available online for all supporters. You can access this here, from wherever you are sat.
Designated Accessibility Stewards
We have two designated Accessibility Stewards present on a matchday, based in the Tribute (west) stand, and the Novia (south) stand. They can be seen in yellow his-vis bibs with “Accessibility Steward” on the back.
Tickets can be purchased through our ticketing page or by calling the Ticket Office on 01225 536900.
If you wish to have access to specific accessibility services as described above, then please request to join our Accessibility Support Scheme.
