The Bulldogs are the American Football team of Bath Spa. Founded in 2007, the Bulldogs have advanced to represent the University in the BUAFL (British Universities American Football League) championships, playing against some of the best sides in the country. Despite being an 11 year old program, the Bulldogs are continuously growing, year-on-year in one of the more challenging university sports. We are a fast developing team, with a main contact team and a non-contact flag team.
Regardless of your size, experience and knowledge of the sport, rookies are an increasingly essential part of the Bath Spa Bulldogs development. With your help, alongside a returning core of players, we will have both a successful season on the field, and off it with plenty of both drinking and non-drinking socials and additional activities.
So, if you want to play a unique sport; if you want to be part of something more than just a sports team; if you've wanted to be part of a brotherhood; a family; then the Bath Spa Bulldogs American Football Team is for you!
