Looking to get fit, meet new people, or just try something new and exciting? UCC Boxing Club is open to boxers of all levels, whether you’ve been boxing for years, or just want to try out a new sport.
Training takes place in Studio 7 of the Mardyke from 8:30-10:30pm on Mondays and from 5:00-7:00 on Wednesdays and Fridays. We start trainings with a rigorous cardio session and move on to boxing drills. Sparring takes place nightly, but you won’t box unless you want to! We provide gloves and head gear, just bring along a towel, a water bottle, and a gum shield if you intend on sparring.
Every year the club competes in the Novice Intervarsity Championships, which take place in November and March. Our coaches, Ken Anthony and Eoin Buckley, have a wealth of experience in boxing and have coaches many of our members to huge success in Irish Intervarsities. UCC Boxing is one of the strongest university boxing clubs in the country, winning four gold medals and coming overall third in last years intervarsity competition.
