Let’s get ready to rumble!

SPORT Manchester and The University of Manchester Boxing Club have joined forces to bring you a ‘Try Boxing’ taster session. Staff and students are invited to the open event at Jabez Clegg on Tuesday 6 December from 11am to 3pm. There will be an exciting display of sparring in an elevated boxing ring and you will be invited to have a go at punching hand pads with a club member.

University Boxing Club Captain John Blissett said: “Boxing is a fantastic way to keep fit and to deal with stress or tension. This taster session will be open to men and women of all ages, staff and students alike, and we’d like to see as many people as possible coming along to see the benefits of the noble art.”
