Netball with Team Bath

We’re very lucky this weekend to be joined by Kim Borger, Jess Shaw, Betsy Creak, Rachel Shaw, Molly Hole and Anya Le Monnier from Team Bath. Take part in a shooting competition against some of Bath’s finest netballers. 


MAX is BACK and he would love to meet you. Find him prowling the Rec before the game for a selfie or even a dance-off. 

Thatchers bonanza

Our sponsor Thatchers have plenty going on at the Rec this weekend. If you’re yet to try their new Blood Orange cider, find the Thatchers team just outside the Swift Half where you can sample, purchase and even WIN a prize on Spin The Wheel! 

There’ll also be some half-time activity involving some very large apples. 

Pol Roger and Cotswold Distillery

Our Performance of the Match sponsor, Pol Roger, will be hosting their own Land Rover bar out in the Fan Village. Also attending our final home game will be Cotswold Distillery supported by Double Dutch, who’ll have some exciting gin cocktails for you to purchase.

Somerset Cricket Club giveaway

With yet another chance to win this weekend, Somerset County Cricket Club will be in the Fan Village with plenty of giveaways. Pay them a visit and see what you can win. 

Live music from Relayz and University of Bath Big Band 

Exciting news this week for our live entertainment fans with appearances from not one but two bands! Relayz are part of our Bath Rugby Foundation, keen cyclists and are all season ticket holders so we can’t wait to welcome them to the Rec for something slightly different to their usual experience. We’ll also be joined by the University of Bath’s Big Band who will perform before the game and Relayz performing after. 

Bath Rugby Pop-up Shop

We’re offering a whopping 60% off our replica kit and up to 40% off our Training Wear and Active Wear range!

Head over to our pop-up shop, our Argyle Street store or shop online to grab a bargain.

Our ‘Keep it Bath’ range will also be available to purchase. 

Fan Radio

If you have a fan radio this week, tune into channels 2 and 3.


There's still time to get tickets! If you want to come and say a final Bath goodbye to some club legends!
