From Dodgeball to Football or Rugby to Park Run Bath has it all going on this weekend. Time for you to either get active this weekend or to get behind your favourite team!
Dodgeball – Bath Spartan Dodgeball club are back this weekend with their Saturday morning training sessions. 11am-12.30 come on down to Hayefield school to try out this unique sport. Equipment is provided so just turn up get ready to dodge!
Park Run – Bath always does something different than other cities and this time it’s with their Park Run. It’s called the Bath Skyline Parkrun and it takes part every Saturday morning at 9am. This 5k run allows you to see the city from Claverton Down which gives you a beautiful back drop to race against the clock. Just make sure you sign up on their website first of all!
Bath City FC – Eastbourne Borough are the visitors to Twerton Park on Saturday 16th ko 3pm. City need more wins in their last 4 games to try and secure their Conference South status. Currently in 17th place in the 22 team league in which 3 teams are relegated. However this only leaves them 2 points above the drop with only 2 points separating City in 17th to Hayes & Yeading in 21st place.
City lost 5-2 away to Eastbourne just before current boss Gary Owers took over. Results haven’t improved much since then with only 3 wins from the 13 games since that game. Owers will be confident his team can put up a decent fight this weekend after winning last week 2-1 away at Concord; coming back from 1-0 down. There will also be a collection at half time for the Bobby Moore Fund and a city centre meet up for fans at Flan O’Briens before the game at 12.30.
