Rawthorpe ABC

Rawthorpe boxing club was formed in 1998 and in the early years ran from within the high school at Rawthorpe. The club was formed by Mr Mark Reynolds who in the beginning ran three sessions per week in an attempt to learn young children within the surrounding areas the art and discipline required to box. Over the years the club has grown and found more suitable premises within the Gas Works club on Leeds road.
The club has over the years formed successful links with a variety of agencies and schools. As well as competeing around the UK and abroad in: Denmark,Cyprus & the Seychelle Islands.
These include Almonbury high school
Netherhall Campus
Fartown high school
Huddersfield university
YOT ( youth offenders team)
Fusion Housing
Lifeline (drugs referral unit)
Probation and the Police service And many
other local primary schools like Rowley lane and Dalton junior school.
Boxing is a very well organised sport which requires dedication from all involved which includes the trainers and boxers who all aspire to become good boxers.
Our club is run by a small number of volunteers who over the years have dedicated time and effort to give all boys, girls,men and women who come through the front doors our knowledge and advice to not only box but to lead healthier lives.
It is fare to say that some that have over the years come to the boxing club on occasions have been on the verge of becoming tangled in less than desirable activities including anti social behaviour and crime. We from the outset with these individuals have shown patience and belief that through our boxing methods we can overcome these very challenging issues and turn these individuals into better members of our comunity & learn to value and respect others more appropriately. Which to us is the most important part of our club.
We are trying to raise funds to purchase much needed equipment for the gym and equipment to form a portable gym, where we can go out into our community and engage with more so to help our community futher.
