The Club was the proud recipient of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2010

Wye Amateur Boxing Club as the club was known as back then, train every week at Hinton Community Centre. They welcome ‘anybody and everybody’ to get involved in boxing. We put the wellbeing and welfare of our boxers first. In recognition of our work, in the summer of 2010, the club received The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. The QAVS is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK for outstanding work done in their local communities.

‘Whoever has courage and a strong collected spirit in his breast, let him come forward, lace on the gloves, and put up his hands’ – Virgil

City solicitor Roland Wooderson was one of those who nominated the club for the award said:

“They’ve helped to turn it into an excellent opportunity for the youth of Hereford to enjoy a facility which allows them to do something worthwhile with their time.”

South Wye Police Boxing Academy’s philosophy:

We believe in working together to improve the boxers’ ability and the coach’s ability to adapt to each boxers needs. This includes physical and mental conditioning and sportsmanship is developed, but also a friendship. Boxers should learn to rely on themselves and to value and respect the input of others and their skills as well as their own.

We believe in confidence building and teamwork. Vince and his team of coaches specialise in these qualities. We strongly believe that boxers should not only learn how to box but to be good losers, but above all, good winners. Finally, respect should be given for those are willing to enter the ring in the name of a good sport.
