- About the BID
Previously Horseshoe amateur boxing club, we affiliated to the amateur boxing association 7 years ago, but really we had been running for around 10 years before then.
Swindon Brunel ABC is a not for profit organisation dedicated to quality training and the development of youth boxers.
The club is based at 15 Havelock Square, Swindon SN1 1LE and is attended regularly by many committed youngsters who want to keep fit, learn discipline and advance their boxing knowledge and skills.
The Club is led by Head Coach, Brian Roberts, as well as Mark Brown, Jason O Donoghue. and Justin Penny.
The Club is open to anyone who has the right attitude and wants to get involved and get fit through boxing.
We always appreciate the support we receive from parents, other clubs and of course the many businesses that sponsor us which enables us to do what we do, thank you.
Head Coach, Brian Roberts had been coaching on and off with different Boxing clubs in Swindon for over 20 years before setting up a club where people around the same age as him could get together and train with their own children. He called it a Boxercise class.
Brian talked to ex boxer and good friend Peter Neil, who was landlord at the Moonrakers pub and he let Brian use the dance floor. There was very little equipment such as a few pairs of boxing gloves, some mitts and a soft football. They trained and played games like hand ball, but the main aim was to have fun whilst keeping active. Boxing remained the predominant sport during their sessions.
Fast forward almost 20 years and Brian has been working incredibly hard to open up the newly formed Swindon Brunel Amateur Boxing Club. As a 'not for profit organisation' a lot of hard work and peoples spare time helped to create the club and have it open for the youngsters.
The team are very proud to have opened the Club and welcomes everyone who is willing to learn, and is serious about increasing their boxing skills.
We are now located at 15 Havelock Square, Swindon SN1 1LE
