England Boxing is the National Governing Body for the sport of Boxing in England, overseeing more than 900 affiliated clubs and more than 17,000 members spread across the country.
The organisation carries out a number of functions including overseeing the safety and welfare of members, child protection and compliance, coaching courses, DBS checking and promotion of boxing to potential new members, enforcing rules and regulations and providing a talent pathway for boxers who excel.
England Boxing also organises and administrates a number of national and regional competitions for Elite, Youth, Junior, Schools and Development Boxers, as well as an annual Three Nations tournament and a female-only Box Cup.
Regional Associations, The Armed Forces and Club Support Officers (CSOs)
Working alongside England Boxing are a series of regional boxing associations who run competitions and liaise locally with local clubs on a whole host of matters. They are Tyne, Tees and Wear, North West Counties, Merseyside and Cheshire, Yorkshire, Midlands, East Midlands, Western Counties, Eastern Counties, Home Counties, London and Southern Counties.
There are also organisations who represent the interests of the British Police, the Royal Navy and Marines, the British Army and the RAF.
A team of club support officers – one per region – is also on hand to assists clubs with the day-to-day running of their facilities, helping to seek and secure funding for new projects that range from providing mental health awareness and tackling knife crime to putting on sessions for people with Parkinson’s and organising lunchtime clubs during school holidays.
