November 1, 2019 | by Matt Halfpenny
Entries are filling up fast for the England Boxing Women’s Winter Box Cup 2019 – with just 30 places now remaining.
Of the original places for 250 boxers, 220 have now been taken for the female-only boxing competition open to Juniors (born 2003 and 2004), Youth (born 2001 and 2002) and Seniors (born 1979 to 2000).
It means that those who have not secured their place for the two-day event at Southern Counties venue, The Guildford Spectrum, on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December should act quickly to avoid missing out.
Costing £20 and open to contenders from home and abroad across a wide variety of weights, boxers from Holland, Italy, Norway, Senegal, Isle of Man, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and, of course, England have already signed up for a slice of the action.
Last year’s inaugural event attracted almost 190 entries and included World and European Youth Champion Gemma Richardson (Scunthorpe ABC) and European Junior champion Courtney Scott (Headland ABC).
With the increased number of participants, this year’s competition will see the number of rings used increased from two to three.
Spectators will be welcome to attend and tickets can be purchased on the day for £20 adults, £10 for concessions and £5 for children. Under-5s are free.
Doors open 11am Saturday and boxing commences 12pm, while doors are open at 10am on Sunday and boxing commences 11am.
“After the success of last year’s maiden event, the first of its type in the UK, this year’s competition is proving even more popular,” said Competitions and Events Manager, Lynsey Lockey.
“We know talking to people at the recent England Boxing National Development Championships that there are still those who are planning to enter who haven’t as yet, so it’s important you don’t delay if you want to make sure of a place.”
