About Us

Fitzroy Lodge ABC is run by volunteers as a non-profit club supported by subscription and donations. Having been in our current location since 1946, we have built a reputation as a respected amateur boxing club and become an integral presence in the local community.

Fitzroy Lodge ABC offers a friendly environment in which to learn, train and compete in amateur boxing. We encourage, support and inspire boxers of all levels. Boxing is a discipline that requires commitment, focus, control, respect and thoughtfulness. Being part of the Lodge brings a sense of belonging, purpose, structure and inevitably a sense of achievement.

Not all our community want to be competitive boxers, so the Lodge also offers a safe and welcoming space to all those who wish to improve fitness, strength and agility while also having fun through boxing training. From beginner to professional, everyone is welcome.

The Gym

Fitzroy Lodge offers a distinctive training space. The open plan area has two boxing rings, numerous punch bags, weights, and a cardio section with running machines, rowing machines and training bikes.

We offer open training sessions throughout the day, and lunch time classes on a Tuesday and Thursday. If you are interested in personal training, please contact the gym by telephone or email and we can put you in touch with a qualified coach.

The Saturday morning class offers an intensive workout guided by coaches to give you the full boxing training experience.

Monday to Thursday evenings are dedicated to junior and senior amateur boxing training. The session times are split. The first class is for beginners and those new to the club, and the second session is for invited boxers with experience.

Both recreational and competitive boxers will need to have an account to book into sessions

Boxers From The Lodge

Fitzroy Lodge has produced many successful junior and senior amateur boxers. The ABA National Championships have seen 26 junior champions and finalists since 1933. Thirteen male senior champions since 1943, including 3 times ABA champion Neville Cole. We have had 2 female senior ABA champions, and the Lodge also sent the first female boxer to compete internationally, Jacqui-Lee Pryce won in Los Angeles, USA.

Some Lodge boxers have gone on to compete professionally. Dave Charnley held British, European and Commonwealth lightweight titles; Cornelius Boza Edwards, former WBC super featherweight champion; Ted Bami, former European light welterweight champion and British light welterweight title challenger; and a young David Haye who would later go on to become a world heavyweight champion.
