Hornets Community Boxing Club
Everyday Active small grant case study
About the project…
What impact has the funding had on your club and the people involved in the project?
Hornets gym has been made Covid safe to England Boxing standards and reopened. The club is open 5 evenings per week. Pre-Covid in an average week 60 male and female boxers joined training sessions at least 3 nights per week. With social distancing attendance has fallen by 40-45%, we can only train 18 people at a time with the new social distancing rules but we’re still managing to train 35 boys and girls plus a group of over 18’s each night we’re open. Our ladies session is full too.
We’re helping our community get their fitness back and stay healthy and we’ve seen the children respond really well to getting their routine back. It’s a huge achievement and we’re very proud of where we are today.
