FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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


Sessions do not need to be booked in advance. We are currently operating a first come first served entry. On rare occasions we may reach the class capacity in which case you will be offered a space in the next available sessions. Arrive early to avoid disappointment. New boxers will need to complete a PARQ form before joining. Under 18yrs will require parental consent prior to training. We ask parents/guardians to complete the Child PARQ form and bring this along to the boxers first session. Competitive sessions are by invite only. Boxers must have contacted or spoke to the coaching staff prior to attending these sessions. New junior joiners will be turned away unless they have the Child PARQ form signed by a parent/guardian.




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, gumshield 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 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 in Amateur competitions?


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.

If you are looking to join our competitive squad and have competed for another club in the past, please arrange a visit via email/phone/at the gym to speak directly to one of the coaching staff.




How can I pay?


We currently offer cash only payments. Subs will be paid at the front desk before training starts.

Competitive boxers will be given payment instructions once invited into the sessions. You will be offered an affordable weekly or monthly subscription.




What happens if i'm late for a class?


Our advice would be do not 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!




Is there somewhere to park?


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. Surbiton railway station is also less than 5-minute walk away and there is great connections to local bus services from Surbiton town.




How do I join a Junior/Youth session?


Junior and Youth sessions do not need to be booked online or in advance. Under 18yrs will require parental consent prior to training. Parents/Guardians will need to complete the Child PARQ form on behalf of the boxer and bring this to their first session. Once the boxer has a completed PARQ form (this can be downloaded from our website or collected from our gym) they can simply turn up before the appropriate session starts and pay the subs in cash.
