Sturminster Newton Amateur Boxing Club presents A Night of Amateur Boxing at Stalbridge Hall on Saturday 24th February. This Annual event brings the best young local boxers together to face opponents from near and far. Doors open at 7.00pm. Tickets on the door only - £12.50 (£6.00 concessions). Bar and Hot Food available on the night. Come and join the great atmosphere and witness this excellent sport.
The Sturminster Newton Boxing and Fitness Club was set up in 2001 by Shaun Weeks. So far the boxing club has produced 26 Western Counties Champions, 10 National semi-finalists, 4 National Finalists & 1 national minors champion.
We endeavour through the Olympic sport of amateur boxing to promote fitness, discipline, friendship, fair play, respect and confidence, increasing quality of life by providing a constructive alternative to anti-social behaviour such as drug and alcohol abuse for the local youth living in Dorset. We also provide positive role models and social inclusion through interaction with our coaching staff and other young boxers.
We have a full committee and currently have four qualified coaches at the club all of whom have to attend certification courses every three years to maintain the highest degree of competency at every level. They all have to be qualified in first aid and CPR and of course, CRB cleared.
We operate child safety policies and have our own child welfare officer.
The club has recently moved to a dedicated business unit split over two floors. We rely purely on grants and donations from the public, keeping the membership fees and weekly cost to a minimum. Please get in touch through the contact us page on our website if you would like to make a donation or have any fundraising suggestions.
