Gymnastics and trampolining
The University of Bath Sports Training Village is the home of Team Bath Rhythmic Gymnastics Club, the All-Round Senior Girls gold-medallists at the 2018 British Championships. Formerly known as City of Bath, the community club – which featured on the CBBC Gym Stars television series – caters for a range of abilities from novice and development squads to international standards.

Ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games, we were proud to support Great Britain’s senior rhythmic gymnastics group with training facilities and support services. See the video below for details of their historic journey.
We remain a training base for the country’s elite rhythmic gymnasts, with the Team England squad staging regular camps at the STV in the build-up to the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
The University of Bath’s SU Sport programme is open to gymnasts of all abilities, and runs gymnastics sessions throughout the year at nearby Baskerville’s Gymnastics Club.

British international Laura Gallagher is one of many talented trampolinists who used the STV for some of her training.
In 2013 she became a world champion – helping the British women’s team take gold at the Trampoline Gymnastics World Championships.
The STV is the main home of Team Bath Evolution Trampoline Club, which holds regular sessions on campus.
Club member Pete Cracknell helped the British men’s double mini trampoline team to bronze at the 2013 World Championships.
We also offer opportunities for students to get involved through our SU Sport trampolining programme, and young people to have a go at trampolining through our Team Bath Tribe programme.
