The National Smelting Co Boxing Club

Smelters Boxing Gym, Avonmouth

April Newsletter

Home Show Henbury Social Club Thurs 14th April.

I’ve booked us an extra home show after not getting as many Smelters boxers on the last one as I’d hoped due to late pull outs by ‘supporting’ clubs, I’m hoping we can get at least 12 of the Smelters boxers on this one. As always your help with selling tickets, promoting and supporting the show is very much appreciated. Tickets are available from the gym and Henbury Social club.  A big thank you to all that supported the last show. We banked £1,125 profit for the club and held a very successful night of boxing because of a great team effort. The last home show is Henbury Social club Thursday 19th of May.

 Training Camp

We’re planning on taking the boxers away on a UK weekend training camp this summer date and venue TBD. The club hopes to pay a substantial amount to the trip costs as we’d like all the carded boxers to go.

 New club T shirts

Hopefully by now all the carded boxers and the majority of the committed new boxers have new club T shirts. There are still a good few left so if you haven’t had one please see me.

 Luke is the champ

Luke Connors won a National Title in the Schools Championships and now goes on to box for England in the Tri Nations Tournament again in Manchester on the 15 and 16th of April.

We all wish Luke the very best of luck, ‘Feel The Force Luke’. It’s been many years since the club had a National Champ and England boxer. It just shows what can be achieved with a lot of hard work, dedication and a bit of luck!

 Team Pictures-Mon 11th April at the gym 7pm

I have a photographer booked in to take team pictures and then all club members. Please be at the gym for 6:50pm so we can organize the kit and get ready for the pictures. They will be sold at a minimum cost to cover the Photographers ex’s.


The Season So Far

We’ve had a great season hosting four successful boxing shows already. The Henbury shows have been brilliant. We’re winning many bouts and have a National Champion and England boxer in Luke Connors. The gym is very busy although I would like to see more boxers training on a Friday night! The boxing team is growing all the time and we now have 22 carded boxers and will be adding to this for next season. Come on you Smelters!

 Train Hard and Box Easy!


Yours in Sport
