Real hand over new top-quality cricket training facility
Contractor and developer Real has completed construction of Bath cricket club’s new state of the art indoor cricket training facility.


The celebration saw Andy Heyes, Regional Director and Matt Templeman, Contracts Manager at Real, ‘handover’ the facility to Bath cricket club Chairman, Matt Hankins and Rob Maggs, Director of Cricket, ready for the club to carry out the internal fit-out works.

The handover was a great opportunity for key stakeholders from Real, Bath Cricket Club and Gilltown to celebrate the work that has taken place over the last 12 months, as well as the successful partnership between all parties.

Since starting work in late 2020, Real has demolished the former run-down Cricket School and replaced it with an upgraded, flood resilient facility which will be used for training purposes by the Club.

As well as the new training facility, Real will be providing a new car park which the club will benefit from.

Andy Heyes, Regional Director of Real South West said:

“Handing over the new Cricket School to Bath Cricket Club is an exciting achievement for us and is the first step towards completing our work at North Parade as we are due to complete the construction of the accommodation next year.

“We are proud to have been able to provide the Club with such a modern and high quality facility for them to use to train local people.”

Matt Hankins, Chairman of Bath Cricket Club said:

“Having this brand-new state of the art facility handed over earlier than expected has brought real excitement to our club. Real have built us an amazing facility that our players and members can’t wait to start using, the building provides us the opportunity to continue developing local cricketers and giving the community a state-of-the-art facility to enjoy.

“It’s been a ‘real’ pleasure to work with such a professional contractor delivering us our new facility ahead of schedule and we look forward to the completion of our new car park next year.”

Adjacent to the cricket club at North Parade, Real are also carrying out the construction of a 144 bed, en-suite student accommodation facility, on behalf of specialist student accommodation providers, Gilltown. Construction of the student accommodation is on target to complete next summer.
