Boxing (Sports Union)
We offer both fitness classes and the opportunity to compete.
The University of Dundee Boxing club is a mainly a fitness class based around the fundamentals of boxing for most non-competing members, we aim to offer the students at both universities & the Dundee community the opportunity to learn how to box, get fit and have fun. However, we have seen an increase in the number of members wishing to compete which is also what the club is about. We will encourage everyone to give it a go, but we will never force anyone to do anything they are uncomfortable with.
The club has achieved 2 Scottish University gold medals, 2 Scottish University silver medals and a British university silver medal. We organised our own home show within the university which raised £500.
The strengths of the club are that we have a solid coaching team who are dedicated to the sport and aim to ensure training is as affordable as possible so everyone can take part. We also now have a good competing team which we can display and encourage more to take part.
In 2016/17, we had 4 Scottish University champions, and a British University champion who went on to get awarded a full Blue award from the Sports Union. The club are also proud to say that following its 3-year break, we managed to successfully organise the Scottish University Boxing Championships!
