Wheelchair boxing

It is important to England Boxing that people with disabilities are able to enjoy boxing in the same way as a non-disabled person.

An increasing number of clubs throughout England have been doing outstanding work to ensure that the experiences they offer are fully inclusive.

If you are keen to get involved, please use the Club Finder to search for clubs near you, who will be able to let you know if they have accessible boxing sessions. If you are unsure, please contact enquiries@englandboxing.org, who will be happy to assist you.

Get inspired by reading a case study on Kate Farley (pictured below), a boxer with cerebral palsy who is a member of Poole ABC in Dorset.

Keen to be make your club more accessible?

If you’re a boxing club that wants to be more inclusive but don’t know where to start, or would like some support to feel confident in what you’re doing, please contact your local Club Support Officer.

You can also download our Mixed Ability Boxing Guide, put together in association with International Mixed Ability Sport (IMAS) and inclusive clubs that feature helpful tips and videos.

Another useful resource is the Inclusion Club Hub – a tool created by the Activity Alliance to help clubs to include more disabled people in their activities.
