Welcome to OBPDC Newsletter Issue 1

Oldham Boxing and Personal Development Centre are the only Amateur Boxing Association of England (ABAE) affiliated club in Oldham. Clubs like ours are where future Olympians are born, and we proudly support and applaud Team GB’s phenomenal boxing success at the London 2012 games. After Beijing, funding was given to the sport along with a target of 3-5 medals. Even before the final bouts, we hit this target with guarantees of 5 bronze. Our sport is growing, and growth in sporting excellence at every level is sure to follow. At Oldham Boxing we’re lucky to have two former Team GB Olympic Coaches, Kevin Taylor and Kelvin Travis, as part of our coaching staff. Share the nation’s success, find a training session to suit you and let your ambitions be Olympic-sized!
