SAA Golden Gloves Boxing Gym opening

This year is the year of the glove! St Augustine Academy has secured £2000 worth of funding to set up a ABA affiliated satellite gym for boxing. The gym has now been created and on Thursday 8th June the ribbons were cut and the gym officially opened. The Golden Gloves Boxing Gym at SAA is designed to unearth the next generation of amateur boxers. The gym is non-contact and is focussed on technique and fitness rather than fighting. The gym got off to a very successful start with 44 students attending the first session. St Augustine Academy is the only school in the south east to have an ABA affiliated gym and the gym is open every Thursday from 3.30 – 4.30, with all students being welcome, even if they have never boxed before. Will you be the next champion of the world?
