Passion for sport

A passion for sport is a vital part of the Royal Artillery's culture. We run teams and clubs playing a wide variety of sports, the list is endless. Sport is an excellent way of developing your leadership and tactical skills - crucial elements in any winning team. What's more, the spirit that bonds you and your team mates is as important on the field of play as it is on the field of battle. Current national sportsmen include Andrew Clarke, team captain of the British Telemark Ski Team, and Charlie Unwin, who has represented Britain in Modern Pentathlon.

There are many sports available in the Royal Artillery, including cycling, cross country, to name but a few.
