FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I just turn up and train or do I have to book in advance?


You must book onto a class in advance. You will need an online web account in order to book classes. All available classes are booked and paid for via the website booking system. This helps us manage appropriate class sizes. New joiners will be turned away unless they have booked on to a class or contacted us in advance. No booking, no session.




What do I need to bring?


All boxers will need to bring a small towel and come appropriately dressed in sports clothing and clean trainers. Please bring any equipment you have such as hand wraps, gloves and a skipping rope. If it is your first beginner session you will need your own set of hand bandages/wraps (sold at the club £5) for training. Once you/your child is committed you should think about getting your own equipment such a skipping rope and gloves. Please ask the coaches for more advice. SBC wants to create a comfortable environment that is safe & enjoyable for everyone.




Can Parents/Partners stay to watch?


We do not let parents or partners stay to watch any of the classes. This is done for safeguarding reasons as well as lack of space. All coaches are Safeguard trained, have current DBS's, in date Frist Aid qualifications and all hold a qualification through our National Governing Body, England Boxing.




Can I compete?


To compete for Surbiton Amateur Boxing Club you must be attending the competitive sessions on a regular basis. You must be close to your agreed weight and have a good level of physical fitness.

The coaches must be confident in your skill and ability before sending you into full contact competition. Boxers who miss consecutive training sessions without reason will not be considered for matchmaking.

What happens if i'm late for a class?


Our advice would be don't be late! Once the class has begun it is unlikely you will be allowed to join in as it disrupts the session.

Just remember, early is on time, on time is late and late is unacceptable!

Firstly you will need to create an online SBC web account. You will find the link to this at the top of our webiste or via any of the 'Join Now' buttons.

There is a carpark right outside the gym which you can use. We kindly ask members to avoid driving where possible as the carpark can become full very quickly. We have a secure bike rack for cyclists.
