Team Bath share a ground with rivals Bath City at their Twerton Park ground, but also train at TeamBath's home in the University of Bath Sports Training Village. Team Bath's nickname is "The Crescents", after the famous Royal Crescent, or "The Scholars". Many purists mock the name "Team Bath" as sounding too American, opting for a more traditional name of Bath University F.C, however this would cause confusion with the other student football teams at the university, who play in BUCS competitions as the "University of Bath". Supporters of rival non-league teams often refer to Team Bath as "Team Tax", based on the theory that the university based club is partially funded by public money.
The club joined the Western Football League in 2000 and were Division One champions at the first attempt. They followed this up two years later by winning the Premier Division title to gain promotion to the Southern League. A sixth-place finish in the Western Division enabled them to step up when the league was reorganised following the formation of Conference South and they are now in their third season in the Premier Division.
In the team's FA Cup run in the 2002-03 season, it became the first university team to enter the competition since Gonville & Caius in 1881. Team Bath entered in the preliminary round and advanced through four further qualifying rounds to the first round proper, before losing to Mansfield Town.
The 2006/2007 season brought success to both Bath City and Team Bath. Whilst the former were division champions, Team Bath finished in second place. However, after beating Hemel Hempstead in the play-off semi-finals, they lost 1-0 to Maidenhead United in the Southern League play-off final, leaving them in the lower division.
Notwithstanding this, Team Bath were successful a year later, beating Halesowen Town in the play-off final, and were promoted to the Conference South, in May 2008.
Team Bath controversially took over backing of the former Bristol City women's football team, which competes in the Women's Southern Championship at the start of the 2007/08 season. Team Bath had competed in the South West Region Women's Football League Premier Division (a step 4 league) and were controversially allowed to resign from this league and take over the (much higher) league position of Bristol City. In effect Team Bath were promoted 2 leagues without even kicking a ball.
