Boxing Club

We are one of the most popular clubs at the university. Our aim is to introduce as many people to boxing as possible whilst developing our competitive boxers to the highest standards. You’re welcome here, no matter your ability or aspiration. Potential benefits:

  • Build confidence
  • Get fit and healthy
  • Learn the technical art of boxing
  • Reduce stress
  • (Optional) Compete against other universities and in national championships

All abilities and aspirations welcome

Haven’t done any boxing before? No problem. Most of our members begin with no experience at all. Beginners are welcome. Most of our ‘All abilities’ and ‘Beginners’ sessions are filled with eager beginners. We’ll teach you boxing technique; help you get fit and healthy and can take you as far as you’d like to go.

Want to become the next champion? You’re in the right place. We have trained English, Welsh, and university national champions. We have elite training sessions for advanced boxers to thrive.

Not keen on the idea of being punched? No worries. There’s no requirement to join in on contact / sparring / matches

Joining to make friends and have fun? Welcome! We have socials almost every week.

Squad sessions

Our advanced boxers learn world-class boxing technique and strength and conditioning from highly experienced coaches and are encouraged to achieve as far as their aspirations go. We have worked with many national champions and medallists.

A typical advanced session will consist of skipping, bag work, pad work, sparring, strength and conditioning, cool down, and stretching. The nature and intensity of each session will depend on what stage of the season we’re in and when the next contests are.

We teach advanced boxing technique and S&C to the highest level and typically have national (BUCS) medallists every year. We usually have advanced boxers in most weight categories who have had anywhere between 1 and 50 bouts, including several national novice and open-class medallists.
