Bath Buccaneers have been based at the University since the 1999/2000 season when a partnership agreement with the University was signed with the aim of jointly developing top quality BUCS and Club in Bath. A joint full-time coach was employed for the first time.
Prior to this date the Club, although well established and successful in the West, had not achieved EHL status. The University had no record of any success in BUCS.
For season 2006/7 the University Hockey Club merged with Buccaneers to form Team Bath Buccaneers to compete in weekend club hockey while independently competing in BUCS hockey as before.
Today the partnership sees Team Bath Buccaneers Mens and Ladies 1st Teams competing in the EHL and both University 1sts Teams competing in the BUCS National Premier Division.
