England Boxing Board Update

May 22, 2024 | by Nabillah Akhtar


The Board of England Boxing yesterday wrapped up its meeting in London.  The roll out of the new CRM – The Locker – and the ongoing consultation with clubs, members and regions were discussed, amongst other topics.

The Board noted that the Tier 1 Membership fee (recreational Boxer fee) will remain free of charge.  The fee structure for Championship entry fees and the England Boxing Events permits is still part of ongoing discussion, with an aim to finalise a proposal for the next Board meeting in July. They agreed that the fees should be fair and as consistent as possible.

The list of questions and comments raised at several meetings with Clubs and Regions was noted and can be viewed here. From the list, the Board highlighted the questions around the doctor’s fees and the concerns around the refresher courses for coaches which will be addressed.

The Board of Directors discussed the new IBA rule to remove headguards for women boxers in IBA championships and sanctioned events at the elite level.  Until further notice England Boxing will not implement this rule change for events under England Boxing’s jurisdiction and the new Rule book will provide a note to explain that.
