The Boxing club at Northumbria are a friendly and welcoming club catering for all abilities from absolute beginners right through to those who want to be on a competitive squad. The club are based out of the Lipman gym (on-site) where we facilitate all our martial arts and boxing sessions. The gym has a competition boxing ring and ample space for fitness and pad work.

On top of all the fun you’ll have training, competing and learning the amazing sport that is Boxing, you’ll enjoy a variety of social events organised by the club making it the perfect opportunity to play the sport you love while having a great time and making new friends.
