SOCIAL, SPORTS & ADVENTURE

Great people and plenty of events and activities mean in the Royal Air Force you get to balance work and play perfectly.

MAKING NEW FRIENDS

RAF personnel develop a great deal of trust and confidence in each other because of how much they rely on one another. These bonds extend beyond work, with plenty of opportunities to socialise with both new and old friends, on and off base. As well as forging new friendships, friends from outside the RAF are always welcome on base.

SPORTS CLUBS

In the RAF you can join a club for just about any sport – from skydiving and scuba diving to tennis and sailing.

There are more than 45 available sports including football, netball, rugby, hockey and athletics. We also offer some less common sports like fencing, bobsleigh, power-kiting, power-lifting and gliding.

CREATING CHAMPIONS

In the RAF you can perform at every level from marathon fun runs to the Olympics across a range of sports and we give you the time, equipment and financial support you need to succeed. What’s more, if you’re participating in an authorised sporting event, you’re considered ‘on duty’ and don’t have to use up any of your holiday allowance.

The RAF has helped the UK produce national and international champions in boxing, sub-aqua, rally driving, rugby, sprint, hammer, cycling, sea angling, canoeing, triathlon, skeleton bob, shotokan karate, motorcycling, microlight, javelin, athletics, snowboarding, and slalom skiing.
