5th July

As part of our continued dedication we are keeping up the pace by organising sparring sessions not only at St Paul’s but other gyms throughout the Region. Tonight saw a great sparring session at the Eastside Boxing Academy. Tonight was even more special as our very own Luke Campbell joined us for a session.
Head coach Mike Bromby paid tribute to Luke and also thanked Mike Dyson for laying on the session.


July begins with our sessions being full of dedicated individuals still wanting to keep fit and build up their stamina.

Please Take Note

The gym has rearranged its sessions slightly to take account of the summer period so take a look at the website to check the times of sessions for the next couple of months.

The boxing season may be closed but St Paul’s Boxing Academy is always open, even when the weather is too hot for most people to handle. The work outside the gym continues as well, because we are dedicated to working with our community.

Sunday 30th June

Humber Half Family Fun Run, supporting Downright special.

The team of St Paul’s all met at the large carpark at the Humber Bridge at 8.30am sharp.  Everyone arrived ready to take on the task at hand. Paperwork was checked and limbering up began. It was an excellent turn out with over 160 members and their families taking part.

Parents and youngsters alike all played their part and made this a special event not only for the Academy but for the community also.

Head coach, Mike Bromby said, “I couldn’t be prouder of such an achievement. I also want to say a massive thank you to Darren Peacock of Peacock Finance for providing all St Paul’s boxing academy t-shirts and coaches tracksuits. We really did look the part. Our own Bailey Miller came 3rd and Kyle Surniam came 10th out of over 450 runners”

Parent, Sara said “What a brilliant turn out for St Paul’s, Couldn’t be more proud of my children they absolutely smashed it, ran the full thing! Proud of everyone today we all did ace”.

Parent Will said, “What a fantastic day at the Humber Bridge Fun Run and Half Marathon. Well over 100 hundred St Paul’s Boxing Academy members took part for such great causes. My kids loved every minute”

Parent Neil said “I watched Two of St Pauls young guns running in great times Zackary Smith & Roman well done lads sterling effort”
