Holmes Chapel Boxing Club is run by a team of volunteer coaches. Club aims and objectives include:
We are affiliated to England Boxing, the National Governing Body for Amateur Boxing.
In May 2020 we became a Registered Charity (No 1189313) as part of Holmes Chapel Boxing Foundation. The club, its work with young people and wider competitive boxing will always be our heart beat. However, we always wanted to build something that is special, part of the community and accessible to as many people as possible.
Our volunteers already invest a huge amount of their time in addition to busy family lives and hectic work schedules. The Foundation allows us to achieve these wider aims and make best use of our amazing new facilities in Station Yard.
Through 2021 we will start to build a daytime schedule and deliver tailored programmes for our community partners including Schools, Healthcare providers and the ability for club sponsors to use the gym for offsite meetings and team building.
Delivery will always be by qualified boxing coaches, as we grow we will continue to invest in the team that can deliver more for Holmes Chapel and surrounding areas
