There's the opportunity for people
to play sport at unit level, station level,
RAF level and I myself joined
the RAF Ladies Cricket Team
when it was reformed in 2004.
I've always loved cricket.
I played it as a kid.
I liked all sports actually
but particularly cricket
and I've been with the team ever since
and it's great
and one of the big benefits of RAF Sport
is you can meet a bunch of people
that you probably wouldn't have met before,
you all from different backgrounds and different trades
but there's still some real leadership attributes
that can come out from playing RAF Sport,
so it's rank agnostic, so it doesn't matter
what rank you are
when you go and play RAF Sport,
you're all one and it's all first name terms
but you still have a captain of the team,
so your captain could be the most junior rank there
and they've got to demonstrate leadership qualities
to captain a team.
You'll have a team manager
who could be any rank and will manage the squad as it were
and it's particularly good for morale, team building,
lots of team spirit and team ethos stuff
as well as just generally keeping fit.
