Club History

The Halifax Boxing Club was established in October 2002 by Mick Rowe. The Club began in a small lock-up in Old Lane, it quickly became very popular and to gain affiliation to the Amateur Boxing Association (ABA) we moved to our impressive new premises at Ladyship Mills, Old Lane, Ovenden in 2006. Since then, the club has grown from strength to strength and trained many champions. In 2010, we had a junior novice champion, a senior novice champion and an ABA champion and we are very proud of all these achievements and the club’s success to date. The club has just recently gained ABAE Clubmark accreditation that Mick and everyone involved have been working very hard towards. We are very proud to be one of only a few boxing clubs in Yorkshire to recieve this prestigious accolade.

Boxing in Schools

Club Mark LogoHalifax Police Boxing Club have been actively working with schools in Calderdale for the past 2 years, with successful programmes in schools including Halifax Grammar, Halifax High and Queensbury, where the children and schools are benefitting greatly from the courses provided. The club has gained the prestigious ABAE Clubmark.

* Fitness

Administration

National Lottery LogoHxABC is a not for profit making organisation run by local volunteers. We have the support of Voluntary Action for Calderdale and particularly thank Mark Burnside for his help.

During the last year we have successfully secured sponsorship from a wide variety of sources including The National Lottery and local businesses. We do however need further sponsorship to improve the facilities we are able to offer. Please see our ‘Sponsors‘ section for further information.

Our Aims

Graffiti ArtThe boxing sport and fitness club is situated in an area that government statistics reveal has a very high level of depravation. We aim to provide activities that will particularly appeal to children, adolescents, women and young adults within the local area. We believe the training provided is amongst the best available for improving fitness with consequent improvement in health and well being. For more details please see the ‘Activities‘ and ‘Training‘ pages.

The Story So Far

Fully Equipt FacilitiesThe boxing club caters mainly for children aged 9 and above, adolescents, women and young adults. Sessions available include boxercise (women only) <16 years 16+ and a separate section for boxers. Most people attending the club do so to improve fitness or look good; they are not under pressure to compete. However, our boxers have had great success in competition winning two thirds of their bouts. One became a Yorkshire Senior Novice finalist at his first attempt.

The Future?

Our premises have significant potential as a venue for a variety of other sporting and leisure activities that could benefit the local community. When sponsorship becomes available we hope to widen the scope of activities to include Spinning, Weight Training, Pool and other leisure activities.
