Timperley Community Amateur Boxing Club was established 2011. The club offers sessions for children aged 8-18, these are divided in to beginners who are just learning to box, juniors who are getting ready to competitively box and then seniors who are carded boxers. In addition we offer sessions for adults and women only. The gym has also been used by Broomwood School for PE lessons and for sessions for children who are not in training or education.
Since its foundation in 2011, Timperley Community Boxing Club has always sought to become a hub in the community. It is run by volunteers. The members come from the Broomwood Estate, the wider area of Timperley, Altrincham and some come from the neighbouring area of Wythenshawe.
The clubs ethos has been about improving lives in the community both physically and mentally. Also a focal point to offer positive diversionary activities in the area by engaging young people and away from ASB and improving mental and physical wellbeing. We have been nominated for Trafford Sports Club of the Year in 2015, one of our young members won a Physical Activity award in 2015.
The club has developed good relationships with 3 local primary schools, Broomwood, Navigation and Broadheath Primary, and have had a breakfast club at Wellington Road School.
The club has been a great success and we have now outgrown our current facility within the Broomwood Community Centre. We are in the process of developing a new build for the community.
Currently we provide a range of services that promote health, wellbeing and fitness for all. We have plans to enhance the services we provide.
In November 2017 Timperley Amateur Boxing club became a charity. Registered charity number: 1175662
