Pakistan Navy has always actively pursued the cause of nurturing various sports activities at national level. Similarly Pakistan Navy also encourages players, both from within the service as well as outside, to take part in sports events and raise the overall standard of sports at national and international levels. The proof of this commitment can be judged by participation of Pakistan Navy shooters in 2nd consecutive Olympics, i.e. Tokyo 2021, after qualifying.
