Attleborough Boxing Club

Club Chairman:

Alan Friedman - Chairman

Two years ago I brought my eldest son off for his first lesson at Attleborough Boxing Club. 

He loved it and it wasn’t long before Pam was encouraging me to come along to the seniors session to “have a go”. 

Thirty months later I am now a qualified level one coach, regular recreational boxer, run the odd marathon and generally have fitness as my primary occupation.

Oh, and a parent to two boys, the eldest is on the squad and my youngest comes along for the fitness and “the banter”. 

I have witnessed first hand how much time and effort the volunteers (coaches, admin staff) and other club supporters give freely and feel compelled to join and support them in the growth of the club.

This is another reason why I took on the role of chairman. 

The club itself welcomes everyone, encourages, nurtures and sometimes pushes people of all ages to achieve in things they didn’t think possible, or maybe had never considered.

I want to help the club reach out to more people and allow them to perhaps experience the seemingly impossible.

Chairman, Attleborough Boxing Club.

Head Coach:

From Acorns to Oak Trees …

Attleborough Boxing Club has grown from a fledgling club into an elite centre of excellence and a strong force within the world of amateur boxing. Now entering into our 6th year of competition with a 32 strong talented competition squad of young athletes, we compete Nationally and Internationally; consistently making the most of every opportunity to enhance our boxers amateur careers.

Our exceptional standards of quality have gained us the prestigious England Boxing Club Mark Award once again. Our new extension has enabled us to vary and enhance our boxers training opportunities further. The fitness and disciplines that underpin the sport are without doubt essential and paramount to the development of successful individual’s growth; providing key life skills, exceptional focus and confidence building.

Much more than a home to champions …

We are open to all within the community, are fully inclusive and welcome all individuals that would like to keep fit and benefit from the disciplines as well as welcoming those that are interested in competing for us.

Principal Sponsors:

Rogers & Norton are extremely proud to be associated with ABC. As one of the main sponsors it is important for us to see just how much of a difference the club makes to the lives of so many young people.

 

The work and effort that goes into the club, to help local young people become more confident; self-assured; disciplined; respectful and fit, is amazing – it produces wonderful ambassadors for the club.

Kerry Dilks

Club President:

It’s been an absolute honour to have been elected president for the 6th year running. Always aiming for greatness, we have made a huge leap forward this year with the completion of our state of the art new extension and have progressed massively on all fronts.

Our satellite provisions have allowed us to work in partnership with many local schools and colleges. We are also delighted to announce that we are also working closely with the University of East Anglia. This has afforded us the opportunity to spread our expertise and exceptionally high standards of training directly into education; reaching out to more young people than ever before.

I would like to personally thank Head Coach Jon Dennis for the sheer passion, dedication and incredible work ethic that he installs within the club and send sincere thanks to all our sponsors, coaching team, administration team, committee members, and the rest of the volunteers that make the gym the great success that it is.

With the competition squad bigger and stronger than ever and an abundance of new members walking through the doors, I am looking forward to an eventful and exciting year ahead!

Richard Caston
President, Attleborough Boxing Club.
