UWE Boxing Club is open to all students regardless of ability, age or gender and is dedicated to enjoying and promoting the ancient sport.



Training will be split into 3 categories: Regular, Fitness and Squad.


This training  will include a mixture of boxing technique and fitness. Ideal for those who want to get started in Boxing without a desire to compete.


This is focused purely on conditioning. A great all-round workout without technical work or sparring, all members are welcome especially squad members looking to get some extra conditioning.

Squad Training

For those that would like to take boxing a bit further, we will also be running squad training in partnership with Barton Hill Gym and The Grey Ranks Boxing club. Both highly established amateur boxing gym's. One or more Official Qualified coaches take these sessions, where you will be trained to be able to represent the university. The squad training will require considerable commitment for the three competitions each year:

  • English University Boxing Series (EUBS) in January.
  • British Universities Championships (BUCS) in Feburary.
  • Varsity Fight Night (UWE vs UoB) in March.

Squad training takes place at Barton Hill Boxing Gym and various other locations so please keep an eye on the facebook page for regular updates.

Training at Barton Hill will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays with a cost per session of £3.50.

Do I need to buy any kit/clothing?

There are no clothing requirements, just be comfortable and wear appropriate footwear.

We have a limited number of boxing gloves for you to use, and as these get used by all you may want to purchase your own pair - though this is not required. 

For squad training you all kit will be available for you to use except personal items such as handwraps & gumshield. You can pick both up in a sports shop for less than £10.
