Tamworth Amateur Boxing Club is a charitable organisation (Charity No. 1111325) and was established in 1969 above a pub in Glascote with the intention of coaching young people the art of boxing.
The club has developed and grown, and now not only offers a gateway to the sport of boxing, but also provides a local and national provision.
The club supports a wide and diverse range of activities, qualifications and inclusion programmes. We are the first club in the UK to award over 100 GCSE’s (52 in 2009 & 63 in 2010) to difficult to reach youngsters who have become disengaged in the education system. This Year we became ABA Club of the year this is a massive achievement for us.
Boxing, also called pugilism, is a combat sport in which two men or women fight each other using punching strikes for competition. Boxing is typically supervised by a referee engaged in during a series of one- to three-minute intervals called rounds, and boxers are generally of similar weight.

There are four ways to win; if the opponent is knocked out and unable to get up before the referee counts to ten seconds (a knockout, or KO) or if the opponent is deemed too injured to continue (a Technical Knockout, or TKO), if an opponent is disqualified for breaking a rule, or if there is no stoppage of the fight before an agreed number of rounds, a winner is determined either by the referee’s decision or by judges’ scorecards.
The birth hour of boxing as a sport may be its acceptance by the ancient Greeks as an Olympic game as early as 688 BC. Modern boxing evolved in Europe, particularly Great Britain.
