A New Home for Cricklewood Amateur Boxing Club
Following five years of nomadic, voluntary sporting provision across North West London, the nationally successful Cricklewood Boxing Club finally opened their new extended and re-furbished club doors on Saturday 14th September.
The club was founded in Camden by Robin Buick in 2014 and re-located to Cricklewood where their partners, the Railway Club, assisted in providing former non sporting space to help the club develop further and thrive.
Having gained support from some local businesses and the Powerday Foundation, other partners such as Sport England and the London Borough of Brent expanded the partnerships and investment into making the ground floor of the club into a fit for purpose boxing gym.
Through all of the partners who have generously re-furbished the facility, upgraded all areas of the gym and provided improved training and changing facilities, the club is now at the phase of opening its facilities formally to the wider community and will also provide health and mental well- being opportunities for local young people, schools and other groups.
Cricklewood Boxing club now have a permanent base and headquarters, which has been achieved through a, mixed economy approach by the Powerday Foundation. By bringing together the local councillors, London Borough of Brent, Sport England and other suppliers and contractors, they have enabled the club to grow and flourish further in the future whilst improving young people
