Boxfit & Running Wednesdays

Non contact boxing related fitness.

EBC Coach Paul Senior will run the Boxfit sessions.

We also do structured running sessions that are free of charge every Wednesday evening from the pier at 8pm.

No questions that these sessions WILL BE TOUGH!


New season

The new season is underway.

Already session numbers are good, but members keep spreading the word and encouraging friends, family and peers to try out our amazing sport for fun, fitness and competitive opportunities.


Women’s sessions

Over the summer, EBC women’s sessions continued but away from the gym. Training took place on the seafront at a variety of locations. Sessions were tough using the natural environment and resources to increase fitness levels and develop their boxing skills. For more information visit their Facebook site here.

The women’s dedicated sessions run on a Tuesday evening from 6.30pm until 7.30pm with a range of activities to break you into a continuous sweat.

 

 

 

 


Outreach Programme

EBC continues to work with local school, clubs and organisations  in delivering a successful alternative programme to a variety of people and ages. Paul Senior, Assistant Head teacher within the SABDEN Multi Academy Trust ‘the young people engage extremely well with the coaching team at the club, the facilities are great and progress the students make excellent’. Paul added that the students from one of the schools actually choose a Friday afternoon boxing session in response to their positive engagement ‘even though they know that the session is going to be, as one young person put it ‘BRUTAL’.

 

England Boxing Level 1 courses

Eastbourne Boxing Club coaches Adam Haniver and Paul Senior continue to deliver L1 coaching courses as Coach Educators for England Boxing both at the club and across the country when required.

EBC is now a 2 ringed gym!

Great news for the club! We now have 2 rings to work in. Part of the club was left as more of a store area, but with a tinker here and there, we were able to add a new ring in (see photo).

This will allow us to have 2 sets of open and conditioned spars going on at once whilst leaving the floor for the usual tech spars etc etc. In turn this will allow us to maximize our sessions and keep the boxers on a straighter line towards their individual goals. 

With the current office, changing rooms and toilet renovations going on with our club sponsor Matthew Budd of Matthew Budd Carpentry and Building Services the club is rapidly moving forward in all directions. Thank you also to Jason Puttick of our other club sponsors, Accurate Roofing for delivering the ring to the club.

The future’s bright, the future is (cliché) EBC.

Eastbourne Boxing Club and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service Raise over £800 for the Asher Fund

run

Running up and down Everest as many times as you can against the elite of the East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is no mean feat.  The ESFRS  came out victors by 3km to win the battle! Meanwhile our efforts raised over £800 for the Asher Fund. Suffering from Cerebral Palsy, young Asher requires ongoing physiotherapy after a series of operations to help him gain control over some of his limbs.

We are very proud to have helped Asher and it was great to see the community pull together with their generous donations.

You can still donate here

Eastbourne Boxing Club raise over £1,000 for charity!

Thousands of people saw our Eastbourne Boxing Club boxers sparring and doing pad work in the town centre on Saturday 10th October. Using our just giving pages and many, many generous donations from the people of Eastbourne it was astounding to see how much we raised for St. Wilfrid’s Hospice. A fantastic day of charitable giving
and hard graft/training. 2 birds with 1 stone! It was great to get young kids up in the ring to do pads also and gently introduce them in this great sport of ours! Thank you also to Hillcrest and Fishersgate Boxing Clubs for their sparring and fund raising too!
