Mark Reynolds modestly describes himself as the Sweeper, Cleaner, Head Coach and – almost reluctantly – as the Founder of the club. Since 1998 Mark’s been using boxing as a tool to model great values to people and the community. Their youngest member is three and their oldest member, Grandad Tom, is seventy-nine. Amazing.
‘Training is a discipline,’ says Mark, ‘Boxing has got good street cred, so not only is it a great way to work out and keep fit, but it also has a vital role to attract people who might otherwise struggle on the fringes. We engage around one-thousand people per week through classes, our memberships and our work in the community. We know we really make a difference.’
