    Bath Rugby

    by graeme83 Written Dec 7, 2009

    Bath is a big rugby town. They play at a stadium called the Rec, which is a two minute walk from Pultuney Bridge. The stadium is relatively small and tends to sell-out for the bigger matches, so it is best to book in advance. Check out their website for more details.

    Victoria Falls Adventure Golf

    Walking back to the town from a game of football in the park we spotted a mini-golf course. Of course this meant that we had to have a game. Cue lots of laughter and probably the best spent £4 of the weekend. I managed to bag second place, succeeding in not loosing to a girl - not a fate that was shared by my friend. He wasn't even close ;) At least he got a hole-in-one though.

    From April to September, visitors to Bath can
    enjoy views of the city from the deck of an open topped riverboat. At Pulteney Bridge take the steps down to the waterway and hop aboard. Tours take approx. one hour. On the return, stop at the Riverfront cafe terrace for a coffee break.

    If you're in or around Bath between August and March, stop by the pitch to catch an exciting rugby match!

    Rugby was invented in Rugby, England in 1832 by William Webb Ellis, a young student at Rugby School who picked up a football (soccer ball) and ran with it in his hands to score. Rugby is a sport at the heart of Bath, a sport that somewhat defines the town. Bath Rugby Football Club has been in existence since the late 19th century, and today the team boasts top spot in several national league championships.

    For newcomers to the game, rugby is a cross between American football and soccer. Unlike American football, players do not wear pads or helmets and play does not end with a tackle, making rugby an extremely fast-paced and thrilling game.

    So, like I said, if you're lucky enough to be in Bath during rugby season, be sure to catch a home match!

    Equipment: Support the team with an official Cotton Traders jersey from Just Rugby or The Bath Rugby Shop, both located in the shopping centres in town.

    The Recreation Ground is the home of Bath RFC. It is very close to town and open for anyone to walk in and explore. Matches are usually held on Saturdays. Bath play in the Zurich Premiership and occasionally in the European Cup.
