Your guide to the Rec

26 September 2019


Bath Rugby will be running a Kids’ Zone this afternoon ahead of the game. Taking place on the outfield from when gates open at 13:00, supporters will be able to take in all the pre-match entertainment, which includes: 

  •        Player Signing and Q&A
  •        Face Painting
  •        Meet Bath Rugby mascot Maximus
  •        On-site open Skills Clinics run by the Community Team 
  •        Kick-pass challenge
  •        Evie’s Mac & Cheese and DS Catering will also be offering kids meals at their food stands


Having been phased in at the end of the 2018/19 season, all Bath Rugby bars and concession stands on the outfield will no longer accept cash payments.

The move to cash-free is designed to speed up transactions and reduce queuing times to ensure that supporters have less time away from the game. 

The Rec will be able to process all major debit and credit cards, with chip and pin applying to all purchases over £30. Bars and food outlets will also accept Google Pay and Apple Pay. 

Make your experience even quicker by downloading the Tap and Go app available to download on Apple and Android. Search “Tap and Go at Bath Rugby”.


Amongst an array of food outlets at the Rec, there is a new vegan stand ‘Have a pinch,’ so make sure you take advantage of the many options available to you ahead of kick-off. Clifton Sausage also offer a vegan option. 


Bath Rugby is working towards being single-use plastic free on a matchday. As part of this commitment, bars and concessions will no longer be selling plastic bottles.

Bath Rugby branded reusable bottles will be sold at every bar at the Rec for £5.
