Workington Amateur Boxing Club (ABC) sparked excitement during its Junior Skills Open Day on April 4.

The event enabled junior members to proudly demonstrate their blooming boxing techniques and progress to their families.

All junior members were rewarded for their dedication to boxing by receiving an award.

The club also offered a selection of cakes made by committee members, along with hot drinks and a tombola.

The event's objective was to bolster the confidence of younger boxers and enrich their boxing knowledge.

Senior members were on hand to help younger members to build their knowledge and gather advice, giving them a 'friendly and valuable learning experience'.

Visitors to the event were taken aback by the junior boxers' talent and the club enjoyed a high turn out of families.

Events like this are made possible due to Workington ABC's 'dedicated' volunteers, including committee members, who help the club to run smoothly.

The coaches are also praised for supporting the club's boxers.

Special thanks has gone to Tommy Boag, who coaches junior boxers twice a week, for his passion in training young boxers and helping the event come to fruition.

The volunteers and coaches eagerly anticipate witnessing the progress of young club members, and see where their journey takes them both as boxers and as individuals.

Workington ABC have more events in the pipeline for this year, which are yet to be announced.
