England Boxing Membership Rules
May 16, 2019 | by Matt Halfpenny
Following recent experiences by the Regions and England Boxing on approving applications from prospective members and disputes between Clubs, England Boxing has pulled together the Membership Rules into one centralised document.
The aim of the Membership Rules, is that for those joining or already in membership they can now easily understand the rules, requirements and obligations in order to deliver boxing to the membership in the best possible way.
Much of this reflects current practice/ regulations and has involved consultation and feedback from the Regional representatives.
This should also help ensure that the rules can now be administered, especially for new clubs, in a clear and transparent way and be able to follow due process.
It also explains what to do in the event of dispute and how any issues can be reviewed. We anticipate this improvement will work in much the same way as the benefits of having one collated Rule Book.
We attach the Membership Rules for your records, these rules will also be available on the website and The Vault from the 1st June 2019.
In addition please see below two recent rule updates which will take affect from the 1st June 2019. The new rules will be added to the England Boxing Rule Book which can be found here.
