Supporting Forces Sport

Babcock is delighted to have this opportunity to engage with Army sports through Team Army, and to build upon our tradition of support for service-people and their families. We are an organisation that thrives on competition and mutual trust, both of which can be found in Army sport in abundance.

The Team Army Sports Foundation is a registered charity which raises funds for Forces sport.  

Sport is critical to the welfare and morale of our Forces, yet taking part in sport is often expensive and in some cases, beyond the means of our personnel. Team Army helps to make sport more accessible by reducing the cost of participation as well as increasing the opportunity for our injured troops to take part in competitive sport.

“We help the best get better. We aim to increase sporting opportunity, promote excellence and also enable recuperation and rehabilitation.”

How you can get involved:

cgs 250 pxl“I place a huge premium on sport in the Army. My starting point is that it helps our Army win in battle. It plays a vital role in welfare, morale, operational effectiveness and recovery. Sport produces soldiers who build and lead teams by habit and reflex. It generates and maintains cohesion. It nurtures pride and that essential corollary – humility. It encourages leaders to think clearly, confidently and positively when under pressure. And fundamentally it feeds a winning culture and ethos that inspire hunger for success on the battlefield. So as we transition from several years of campaigning to a new era where we need to be ever ready for a broad range of challenges, our soldiers must be given opportunities for sport, challenge and adventure. Thank you all for supporting Army Sport: it is hugely appreciated.”
