A few words about our boxing club

Wigton Community Amateur Boxing Club was founded by 3 men from the small town. Andi Crossman, Arthur Greaves and Paul Radcliffe founded the club on a plea from local police to help battle anti-social behaviour within the town back in 2009.

Each person had big roles in the club Arthur being a professional coach for years in Manchester, Andi, former England international and British amateur boxing champion and Paul being an ex-town mayor had the contacts needed to secure the funding to start off. We gained premises in an old school hall in Wigton where the club gained the interest of some locals and started coaching them in the noble art of boxing.

Boxing is an Art


Boxing is a Great British tradition and noble art that has long since been recognised as a sport worthy of Olympians. Learning to box develops and nurtures courage, encourages discipline and self control leading to increased confidence all while developing very high levels of fitness.

Learn Self Control


Boxing is as much about self control as it is about physical ability; it requires strength of mind as well as body. People share respect with boxers and boxers respect each other. These are the values and benefits you will develop and maintain when you learn to box at Wigton ABC.
