There used to be plenty of opportunity way back when, inter divisional sports and inter ship, usually against the tiffs. We had a ships soccer team,rugby team and cross country. The PTI's usually ask for volunteers and they will be keen to know if you are another David Beckham.
I remember representing the ship at rugby,cross country and pulling( the naval term for rowing) and was presented with colours. Bit of red silk with the sport embroidered on in gold. I thought it would be cool to sew them on my running shorts. Rugby and Cross Country were fine but Pulling was a good career move
