Our Amateur team spars regularly to prepare them for competition. We do not throw people in at the deep end but teach them the tools to protect themselves and attack effectively before putting them in the ring for supervised, controlled and conditioned sparring.
All boxers must be receive a medical check by a Doctor registered with England Boxing and declared 'Fit to Box'. Sparring is not permitted unless in head guards, with a suitably fitted gumshield and 14oz minimum sparring gloves. Gloves and headguards are available to borrow but we advise serious boxers to buy their own.
On Friday evenings we host our sister club Rathbone ABC for Inter-Club sparring and often take boxers to spar with other clubs, at London squads and to female Aspire days.
