Sports Training Village accessibility
The Team Bath Sports Training Village (STV) is fully accessible to members of the disabled community, with wheelchair access routes and clear signposting throughout the building.
As well as being home to the hugely-successful Great Britain wheelchair fencing team, the STV has hosted such major disability sport events as the Invictus Games Trials, Special Olympics and ParalympicsGB training camps.
Visiting the Sports Training Village
Both main entry points to the STV – the front entrance on Convocation Avenue and the rear entrance through the Sports Café – are step-free.
Within the building there are lifts wherever there is a change of level. These are located by the stairs to main reception; by the indoor sprint track; at the entrance to the Jumps & Throws Hall; and by the swimming pool changing room (to upper floor only). Wheelchair access to the second floor of Gym 2 can also be found by the stairs to main reception.
There is wheelchair access to all facilities within the building including the Team Bath Gym & Fitness Centre, sports hall, tennis courts, athletics tracks (indoor and outdoor), judo dojo, pentathlon hall and Physio & Sport Science Centre.
Our Team Bath fitness instructors run dozens of exercise classes every week, click here to view the latest timetable. Please contact Health & Fitness Manager Sam Holmes at email@example.com to discuss the content of the classes and how they can be adapted.
There is a hoist for wheelchair users to access the water in the hydro-pool. There is no hoist into the 50m swimming pool but there is step-free access to poolside from the changing room. Wheelchairs and walking aids can be left poolside.
Parking and transport
There are disabled parking spaces in all campus car parks, with the closest to the STV being located in Car Park G in the South car park.
