Amateur Boxing Club annual show at Tenbury High School
Tenbury Amateur Boxing Club will be holding its second annual boxing club dinner show at Tenbury High School on Friday 11th March, between 6.30 pm and 2.30am.
Last years event attracted a bumper crowd of 450 people, with this year’s show now sold out, it promises to be a boxing event to remember.
Martin ‘Paddy’ Brennan, Tenbury Amateur Boxing Club founder, head coach and event organiser, stated: “This is only the second time we’ve held this event, and topping last year’s crowd is amazing. Holding it in Tenbury is a must as it pulls everyone together from every walk of life, which is just fantastic.”
A guest appearance will be made by X Factor entrant who got all the way up to Cheryl Coles boot camp. Ellice Chidlow, who will sing whilst guests enjoy a sumptuous two-course Indian meal, created by the Shamraj Indian Restaurant in Tenbury, with Irish dancing care of the Sean Eireann McMahon Academy of Irish Dancing, regular competitors at the World Irish Dance Championships, as well as an array of 14 boxing contests throughout the evening.
Said Martin: “Boxing isn’t just a sporting event with two people knocking seven-bells out of each other it’s so much more than that. Itchanges young lives, altering an individual’s perspective on life; as they become disciplined and respectfulto all around them; it helps build and develop focus,and become one of life's champions.
“Boxers are the life blood of the club, on most nights we can expect to see at least 35 juniors being put through their paces, with senior's just as popular as beginner sessions. Our coaches and committee work very hard, andgive all their time for free, with the aim being'to ensure we give our boxers the best possible opportunities in boxing and also learning about life.”

Fitness and confidence and sportsmanship; amateur boxing focuses on good sportsmanship. Boxers learn how to be good losers, and more importantly, how to be good winners. In an average boxing gym, less than 1% of the athletes become professional boxers, but all of them will become contributing members of society. Tenbury Amateur Boxing Club believe that in a properly run gym, all boxers will learn life skills and a sense of self-worth which comes from personal achievement.
