Footage of phenomenal new Bristol Bears training facility that has 'blown away' anyone who has seen it

Bristol Bears moved to Stage Two of rugby’s return to play process at the club’s brand-new training ground this week. Stage Two allows for the resumption of close contact training, with small groups and/or teams able to interact much closer to one another.

The Bears squad, including new arrivals Kyle Sinckler, Semi Radradra, Chris Cook, Max Malins, Ben Earl and Mitch Eadie, began settling into their new state-of-the-art surroundings.

Mark Tainton says he and everyone involved at Bristol Bears have been ‘blown away’ by the club’s new training facility, despite it being not quite completed yet.

“When you drive down the long driveway, through the trees and get the first sight of the building, it takes you aback. I’ve been blown away – and I’ve been working on it every week for the last year. For the players to see it finished, or nearly finished, it’s amazing – they’re delighted, and they were blown away too,” said the former fly half.

“It’s a massive boost to everyone involved in the club that we’ve come to this new facility – and in fairness to the main construction company, Beard, they’ve done a tremendous job.

“From what I’ve seen, the players have been very enthused and looking forward to the restart of the season.”
