To motivate, encourage regular exercise and promote a healthy lifestyle and diet. Banbury Boxing Club opens a door for many people from all walks of the community to get involved in a fun, exciting club and make new friends.

'Pound-for-pound' the best boxing club around...

Banbury Boxing Club was founded in September 2012 by brothers Ben and Tom Malcher, Mark Cooper and Dave Green. The club is proudly affiliated with England Boxing and is a club for competitive and recreational boxers.

Our coaches are certified and registered with the Home Counties ABA and England Boxing. They all have enhanced DBS/CRB clearance and current first aid certificates. Safeguarding the welfare of our boxers is important to us. 

We are a ‘not for profit’ charitable club run by volunteers and supported by donations, grants and member subscriptions. The main aim of Banbury Boxing Club is to offer affordable boxing classes in a safe environment for competitive boxers to train and compete in the sport of amateur boxing who might one day represent the Home Counties, England or even Team GB!
