The club was formed in 1963 as the Bath Gliding Club, eventually becoming the Bath & Wilts Gliding Club. Until the move to The Park in 1992, when the club became the Bath Wilts and North Dorset Gliding Club, the club flew from Keevil airfield. There are currently around 25 privately owned gliders. The club is host to the Bath University Gliding Club. There are no paid staff, all club functions are provided by club members
