UWE Boxing Club has something to offer for everyone. All levels of experience are welcome from complete beginner to advanced. We offer non-contact and competition training under two boxing coaches.
UWE Boxing Club is a boxing club which is open to all students regardless of ability, age or gender and is dedicated to enjoying, and promoting the ancient sport. We have restarted the club after years of inactivity and it has been a great first year with over 85 members for the club. We have some great plans for the upcoming 23/24 season with BUCS, a big fight night and also Varsity being discussed and planned. Details about the club moving forward will be updated on the website and also on our instagram pages. In addition, we have two students who will be our coaches for the year as well as having srength and conditioning coaches for our members who wish to compete in BUCS and also any fightnight.
Our Monday sessions are based on campus in the sports hall in the center of sports at UWE. Within these sessions, they include fitness, technique, footwork as well as drills, and sparring. All members must bring the correct equipment to spar such as a head guard, mouthpiece, and boxing gloves (must be 16 ounces). All members must either wear their team UWE T-shirt or UWE kit to training. You must have a membership to attend the sessions anyone who hasn't got a UWE Boxing membership will be turned away.
Monday 15:00 to 17:00 at the Centre of Sport at UWE
Friday 14:00 to 16:00 at the Centre Of Sport UWE
We would recommend buying shorts if you do not have the UWE boxing kit and also a Vest. Each member does get a free Team UWE T- shirt when they purchase their membership.
We have boxing pads within the equipment cage as well as skipping ropes that can be used. We also have some boxing gloves as well which can be bought and also some spares that can be used, if required, during the sessions on campus.
Club socials are on Wednesday nights and are not to be missed!
This year we are concentrating massively on socialising everyone together as well as occasionally joining other sport societies to ensure we ALL have the biggest and best nights out!
Pam Pams is our chosen venue for sports nights and it never ever fails to deliver! Themed and fancy dress nights are a regular occurence with initiations being a great laugh and a brilliant way of welcoming the boxing freshers to our club.
As well as Wednesday night socials, this year as a club will be focusing on providing a range of different socials to suit everyone. These will include meals out, day activities and much more. We are always welcome to new ideas! We are aming to try and have a meal each month with our members as well as hosting a social whilst watching some of the boxing live on Sky Sports anf TNT Sports. This social will likely take place at Cider Press on Glouester Road which is around 20/25 minutes on the bus from UWE Bus stop.
After buying a membership you will be sent a message to make a spond account to connect with the rest of the existing club. This app is to give your avalibilty to both training sessions and also social events that are being orgainsed by the social sec and also the rest of the commitee.
