Girls In Gloves (GIG) is an England Boxing initiative set up with 2 main goals...
- Introduce Female Boxing into Schools
- To Increase female participation in Boxing
- Increase Opportunities For Female Boxers within the Sport
With more and more girls dropping out of sports every day and with the stereotype that Boxing is a boys-only sport, the number of Female Boxers is very low throughout the Country. The GIG initiative aims to make Boxing more easily accessible to girls of all ages, whether they want to do it for fitness, confidence, make new friends or compete, everyone must feel welcome
Our School Boxing Program has already been very successful and the first 3 clubs we set up saw over 100 girls sign up to take part. We aim to keep pushing forward with these and hope that more clubs around the country are able to provide something similar. If you are an Amateur Boxing Coach reading this and would like to know more please contact us.
We are also very keen on increasing opportunities for females once they're in the sport as well. This includes Sparring weekends, All-Female Shows, and hopefully an All-Female BoxCup in 2021.
If we can get girls into the sport, keep them interested and progressing then we are definitely winning
Its time to push Womens Boxing to new heights...
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
