Some of the Wimborne ABC Girls were invited along to a Sparring Hub hosted at Newport ABC on the Isle Of Wight.
For a lot of these girls, this was their first time boxing outside the comfort of their own gym which is a really big step.
"Im nervous but excited, maybe more nervous right now" - Lilly Cooper
These girls, aged between 10-14yrs, are either currently competing or looking at competing one day, so experiences like this really help them to develop as boxers
The girls got in plenty of rounds of sparring as well as working with other boxers from Newport on their foot drills and hand defences.
A massive thank you must go to Mike, Head Coach at Newport, for organising the day, ferrying us around and giving the squad an absolutely brilliant time.
Its days like these that really help to retain female members as well as possibly boost the numbers.
Wimborne will be holding their own Female Sparring Hub in August so watch out for the dates..
We put together a short Video of the day also..
