Opening of West End Boys Amateur Boxing Club

At lunchtime today, I had the honour of undertaking the official opening of West End Boys Amateur Boxing Club at its new centre in the newly refurbished community facilities at Dundee West Church.

West End Boys Amateur Boxing Club uses facilities with a newly decorated sports hall and a 16ft boxing ring and equipment at the church. This project is not for profit, the principal aim being to help all interested in boxing to have a local club they can join and to find new boxing talent for Scottish amateur boxing.

Emilio Places-Rey and his team deserve great credit for getting the club off to a great start. There's already a good membership level and a lot of real enthusiasm amongst the members.

The Courier published an article about the club on Thursday - see or click on the headline above.
