A complete athletics set-up

The athletics programme at Team Bath caters for athletes from grassroots level right through to performance standard.

Our world-class track and field facilities are open to the public, meaning young athletes and recreational and club standard athletes can train at the same venue used by Olympic-standard competitors.

We were only the second University in the country to be awarded a Gold Charter Mark by England Athletics, recognising the high standards of coaching and support offered to student-athletes across all track and field disciplines, as well as the vibrant training and competitive environment provided at the Sports Training Village.
