Amateur Boxing Club

About Us

Lympstone Amateur Boxing Club was founded on November 14th 1968 by Neil Parsons.
His aim was to create sporting and social opportunities for people in the local area, and to share his love of boxing with others in the community.

Our president is Mr Frank Maloney.

Our Vice President is Mr Steve Cudd

The wellbeing and welfare of our boxers is paramount!

The club endeavours to promote discipline, friendship, fairplay and confidence.  We are a team and work together to provide positive role models through interaction with our coaching staff and other boxers.

We often organise club fundraising and social events to encourage a team ethos and raise funds towards club developments and activities.

We currently have 8 senior carded boxers, 5 junior carded boxers, and 17 recreational members.

Lympstone ABC has been home to various regional, national and international boxers:

  • Ken Bates - Southern division heavyweight champion.
  • Jason Woodgate - English schoolboy international &           national finalist.
  • Danny Walkey - English schoolboy international.
  • Brian Quinn - National schoolboy finalist.

Harding Hall became the home of Lympstone ABC in 1997.  It was named in honour of one of our boxers who tragically died in a motorcycle accident in 1982.  Timothy Harding was a promising young boxer who won his first 13 bouts, he will always be remembered fondly by the club.
