Repton Boxing Club Review, Joining Proceedure and Opening times
Repton Boxing Club is the oldest established Boxing Gym in the country. The club is affiliated with the A.B.A. and is a Gym for serious, Competitive Amateur Boxing and not to be confused with the type of Boxing classes provided by leisure centres. The Gym oozes energy and character and is has been the birthplace of over 500 National champions. The standard of Boxing is of international standard, competitive and is definately not a place for the PC Brigade or faint hearted.
Hence the Club's Motto ‘Non Viscara…Non Gloria’ (No Guts...No Glory)
There are no Beginners classes or Box-to keep-fit Classes which have become trendy in recent years at Leisure centres and Gyms which have sprung up to cater for keep fit enthusiasts. We do not have these facilities, which would create overcrowded conditions and is not what the club is about. Unfortunately we are not in a position to offer boxing training to Ladies, due to the lack of Facilities.
If you are an Amateur Boxer and feel you can progress no further at your existing club, feel free to come along to The Repton to have a chat with one of our coaches about your situation. We welcome any young boxer who has the potential, determination and hunger to become a high achiever in Amateur Boxing.
Any new members over the age of 17, wanting to Join The Repton should come along to the club on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday between 5pm & 7;30pm, to consult with Senior Coach Tony Burns, Coach Gary McCarthy or Coach Gary Cook first, before commencing any training session. Juniors who want to join the club, between the Age of 10 and 16 should come along on a Tuesday or a Thursday between 4:30 -7:30pm to see Head Junior Coach Bobby Beck Sr.
We have a Saturday Morning Nursery for 7-10 year olds, which usually opens between 10:30am and 1pm. The boys are taught how to skip and how to use the co-ordination between their hands and feet, then how to use them for boxing skills. Anyone who would like thier boys to join, should come along to the club on a saturday morning and speak to Head Coach Fred Buckland (07979 688 854) or Assistant caoch Johnny Vaughn.
Our Senior head coach Tony Burns has been at the club for over 45 years, has been to 10 Olympic games with Repton Boxers and has been awarded an MBE by the Queen for his services to Amateur Boxing. Between them Our Coaches have over 200 years of valuable experience to pass on to Club Members who have what it takes to become Champions !
