Team Bath AC
We are a charity and our purpose is to help our local community of Bath enjoy athletics…whether that be getting into running, track or field, achieving a personal best, representing the country or simply keeping a healthy mind and body.
From 7 years upwards…whatever your age, ability or goal, you will have access to excellent coaching, advice and world class facilities, plus the camaraderie and support of your team mates.
Based at the prestigious University of Bath Sports Training Village, you can choose from Track & Field, Road & Trail Running, Endurance & Cross Country. There’s an indoor and outdoor track as well as a throws and jumps hall, for quality training all year round.
Club nights are Tuesdays and Thursdays: 6-8pm. So come and join us, and see what you could achieve.
Rotary Club of Bathavon
Each year the Rotary Club of Bathavon raises funds for one local charity in particular. This year’s choice is Julian House. Funds are raised through events such as speaker dinners, the Mayor’s annual art show, supermarket collections and, of course, the Bath Hilly Half.
Members help in the community e.g. with food parcel distribution for Bath Food Bank; decorating jobs for Bath Food Bank and the Peggy Dodd Centre in Combe Down; listening to students reading at St. Michael’s Junior School in Twerton; engaging in enterprise challenge and mentoring activities at Oldfield School.
Internationally, over the last few years – through a UK-based charity – the club has been directly involved in the funding of a training programme for teachers of English in the poorest tea plantation communities of Sri Lanka. Members have and continue to participate in weekly conversations with some of those teachers over the internet. The club is currently sponsoring four students through their secondary education at the West African Academy of Science and Technology in The Gambia, and raising funds for a foundation which plants trees and tries to stop deforestation in that country. For many years the club has also sponsored the education of one or more bright female students from disadvantaged backgrounds at a secondary school based in Nairobi, Kenya.
