Since 1948

Our history speaks for itself



Going strong since 1948, St.Paul’s has a rich history of developing champions. You could be part of the next chapter.


Having raised £500,000 to refurbish and re-equip its premises, St. Paul’s is now ready to write the next chapter.


Working hard to bring local people closer together, we strive to build relationships within the wider community.

Welcome to St Paul’s Boxing Academy where we aim to produce champions inside the ring and outside the ring. We aim to produce champions in life.

From our gym on North Church Side in Hull, we run boxing classes and boxing-based fitness programmes for all ages and all abilities.

We also partner with other local sports clubs to help their members attain the highest levels of fitness, and work with a diverse range of community groups, providing access to our equipment and expert coaches.

St Paul’s was founded in 1948 and throughout our illustrious history, the club has produced many champions.

Olympic gold medallist, Luke Campbell, started his highly successful career with us and former Commonwealth lightweight title holder, Tommy Coyle, was also a member of St Paul’s Boxing Academy.

But we are also uniquely positioned to reach the most impoverished and hard-to-reach young people in our city. By providing a safe environment and coaching them in the sport of boxing, we help them gain skills, confidence, self-esteem, fitness, and so much more.

At St Paul’s Boxing Academy, we are one big family where everyone is welcome. If you’d like to find out more about becoming a member, please get in touch.


St. Paul's have paved the way, not only for me but for thousands of youngsters over the years. It will always have a special place in my heart.
