ALTUS AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. -- There is nothing wrong with a little friendly competition, and intramural sports are a way for everyone at Altus AFB to join with their respective squadrons and have healthy fun competing against each other.
When it comes to intramurals, it does not matter the individual's skill level or experience in the sport. It all comes down to joining together and having a good time.
"I enjoy working together as a team," said U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Veronica Long, 97th Comptroller Squadron customer service technician. "Intramurals bring everyone together. It is a fun way to stay in shape."
The current intramural sport is volleyball. Some Airmen on the volleyball court are new to the sport, while others have more experience in playing.
"I used to play volleyball in high school," said U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Louella Campbell, 97th Operations Support Squadron first sergeant. "I really liked it, so this is the perfect time for me."
Intramural sports have many benefits for those who choose to participate.
"It's great for morale, stress management and camaraderie," said Campbell. "The members of our team work in five different facilities, so it's cool that we all come together to play as a team. I enjoy spending time with everyone in the squadron."
Intramural sport teams allow everyone who wants to play a chance to get in the game, whether it is for one game or the entire season.
