All soldiers who are keen to pursue a sporting interest can do so – whatever their ability.
This includes the injured and disabled, who participate in sport through an initiative called Battle Back. They train with and compete alongside the able-bodied, as all Battle Back activities are integrated into able-bodied programmes.
The best athletes in the Army can compete internally, at a combined service level, against Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, and with civilian teams.
The Army Sport Control Board (ASCB) was formed in 1918 and is the regulatory body for sport played in the British Army at all levels.
Through Battle Back seriously injured service personnel are encouraged to participate in sport and adventurous training as part of their rehabilitation process
Army sports range from national disciplines to minority interest events.
