A number of changes are being made to staff prices for the use of sports facilities at the University of Bath to bring them into line with other charges.
From 14 November 2011 onwards existing staff charges will be extended to cover all sports, although in many cases staff will see no changes to the charges they currently pay.
University staff will receive a 15 per cent discount on the headline public rates
You can find a table of the staff ‘pay & play’ charges for sports below.
Staff who do not make the booking themselves will have to pay a 50p access fee to take part in the activity, apart from swimming and athletics.
All bookings and payments should be made at the Sports Training Village reception, even those for activities taking place at the Founders Hall.
However, staff can buy blocks of five payment vouchers for badminton, squash and basketball (see Primary bookings procedure [PDF]) or guest fee vouchers for use in the Founders Hall (see Guest fees online procedure [PDF]) on Team Bath’s Online Store.
All facilities can now be booked by staff up to three days in advance.
Regular users of the facilities may find they can get even better value for money by taking out a membership package on which University of Bath staff will also get a 15 per cent discount.
There is also a new racquets membership available for staff at a cost of £231 a year, which allows you to play badminton, squash and tennis for a year, subject to bookings, at no additional charge. Please note, staff with existing tennis memberships will have them automatically upgraded to a racquets membership at no extra cost.
There is a table of membership packages below.
