Sportsmen and Sportswomen



The Physical Education flight provides support and encouragement to all Service men and women, their dependants and to MOD/civilian employees at RAF Cosford who wish to take part in sport.

This includes everything from football to horse riding, archery to off-road motorcycling, along with a wide range of adventurous training activities from rock climbing to kayaking. The PEd Flt encourages everyone to follow a healthy lifestyle and as part of this philosophy, it requires all Service personnel to attempt the RAF Fitness Test each year, providing remedial training for those who are unsuccessful.

We administer the Commandant's Cup to further increase the numbers of people taking part in sport and ensure that all the facilities for these activities are maintained to the highest standards. These facilities include:

  • all-weather hockey and football pitches
  • an indoor swimming pool
  • tennis courts
  • 2 large gymnasia for all indoor activities

An extensive Cardio-Vascular training facility known as the Arena. The Arena is equiped with:

  • running
  • cycle
  • rowing machines
  • free weights
  • and a vast array of other exercise equipment

Virtually every sport is available at Cosford and the PEd Flt are willing to assist everyone, whether it is a total newcomer or a fitness fanatic. Their aim is to help you achieve your goals and hopefully lead to a healthier future.

In addition to the facilities at RAF Cosford many personnel compete at higher levels and many are members of RAF Wide Sporting associations.
