Following a dramatic finale in last Friday's game against Northampton Saints, Bath Rugby are back in Aviva Premiership action at the Rec this Saturday for the visit of Harlequins, kick-off 15:00.
In order to make the most of your Saturday at the Rec, check out our handy guide below:
Following the success and popularity of matchday Q&A’s, we will be holding another, this weekend. Due to the capacity of the marquee, a ‘’first come, first served’’ policy has been implemented for all Season Ticket Holders wishing to attend. Managing Director, Tarquin McDonald, Head of Operations Alex Cohen and first team player, Matt Banahan, will be on hand to answer your questions from 14:00.
A first come, first served and strict one in, one out policy will be in place due to capacity restrictions. To gain entry, you will be asked to show your season ticket on the door.
As usual, Happy Hour will be running between 13:00 and 14:00 where you can enjoy a £1 off discount of Bath Ales Gem and Thatchers Gold at all bars. You can also make your way to the Swift Half to find selected promotions from The Great Western Wine bar.
Families are also encouraged to come and enjoy their own special Happy Hour as Get Battered Fish and Chips, AC Catering and Grillstock are all offering 50% off food. Simply show a valid kids match ticket between 13.00 and 14.00.
The Club Shop on Argyle Street and the Mobile Unit in the main car park will be packed with all your Bath Rugby merchandise requirements. You can also save 15% on selected training wear and 30% off European Replica Shirts.
For our younger supporters, we will have a face painter and balloon animal artist offering pre-game entertainment. These can be found on the outfield behind the Dyson (East stand).
Club mascot, Maximus the Lion will also be out on patrol and is always willing to stop for an autograph or selfie!
For this weekend’s half-time challenge, it’s a family affair as we are looking for four groups comprising of one adult and one child, to take part in our Old School Sports Day on the pitch. The winning partnership will receive a family ticket to The Clash, our fixture against Leicester Tigers on the Saturday 8th April at Twickenham. To apply, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure you stick around after the final whistle as fan-favourite, The Payoff will be playing in the Swift Half.
Food and bars
We have the usual array of food and bars available to tickle your tastebuds, including AC Catering, who will have supporters favourite, the ‘Banahan Wrap’, on sale, as well as Dough Pizza, Cau, Get Battered Fish & Chips, Pieminster and Grillstock BBQ.
We are delighted to be trialling a new pre-order and fast-track collection service in the Swift Half. Available on Apple and Android devices, the “Bath Rugby Bars” App can be used to pay for beers, soft drinks and crisps ahead of the game and then collected from the Swift Half. Orders can be placed in advance or on arrival at the Rec.
There will be a special pre-order collection point at one end of the bar space in the Swift Half. The service will operate pre-match and at half-time.
We’re going to be trialling this service over the next few home games as part of our commitment to enhancing the supporter experience and digital engagement at the Rec. We’re hopeful that a successful trial will result in a roll-out across more bars in the ground in the near future.
To access the app, simply search “Bath Rugby Bars” in the relevant store for your device, download it, register your details and fast-track your order.
