One of the many advantages of being based on a university campus is the array of catering available near to Team Bath’s own facilities.

And The Level 1 Café just a couple of hundred metres away from the Sports Training Village, features a large open area that can cater for up to 330 guests for breakfast, lunch or dinner, while larger groups can be catered for through separate sittings.
