Our Story 

Kingswood Boxing Club was set up in the 1970s by local legend Ray Jones and enjoyed success in the following two decades.

Hundreds of youngsters passed through its doors in the old YMCA building in The Park, most notably a young lad by the name of Ross Hale who went on to win the British and Commonwealth light-welter weight titles.

When the building was sold for flats in 1986 the club moved to the Kingswood Foundation and continued its successful run.

But when it was forced to move once again in 2009, this time to make way for a cafe, the club experienced eight years of being moved from pillar to post. 

Now two men, buoyed by their love of boxing as youths, have resurrected the club after finding a permanent home in Fishponds.

Coaches Craig Amos, 34, of Fishponds, and Shaun Luther, 50, of Longwell Green, both boxed for Kingswood Boxing Club as youngsters and are determined to see the club enjoy the same success it received in its glory years.
