Sports Training Village

The £30 million Sports Training Village is the hub of sports activities at the University of Bath, where the vast majority of sports facilities can be found 'under one roof' on the University's Claverton Down campus.

The Sports Training Village is open seven days a week for students and elite sportsmen and women, as well as public sport and recreation.

You can see things for yourself by taking our 360° virtual tour around of our facilities.

On a compact site we have a range of top-class facilities:

The Sports Training Village is capable of hosting more than 50 sports and it attracts 1.3 million visitors each year.

We have further facilities nearby at the Founders Hall, which is less than 200m away from the Sports Training Village, and grass pitches at the Sulis Club, which is about a mile away from the main University campus.

Our facilities are accessible to people with disabilities.


We can adapt our sports halls to a variety of uses for a number of different sports. Top teams and individuals train here every day and we are flexible to their needs as well as to those of the public.
