Tralee Boxing Club went a tough 8 rounds with approx 60 kids from the local community over the last fortnight.

The club’s Summer Camp was the undisputed champ of the holiday schedule, as we managed to fit in a full programme of physical activities, boxing skills, games and arts and crafts with a good dose of fun thrown in on top.

We were delighted to welcome 12 young Ukrainian boxers into our club over the 2 weeks, as the camp was partially funded by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth through their Community Integration Fund.


Ukraine has produced many world class boxers, famous for their remarkable footwork and toughness, we are determined to help continue that tradition by putting the next generation through their paces. We hope to see all our future superstar boxers back in the gym in September for the new season. Class times for September as follows.

TBC would like to acknowledge the absolutely fantastic, never-ending level of work undertaken by camp organisers Lynda and Nikki. We thoroughly appreciate the huge effort from all coaches and volunteers, including our many friends from the Ukrainian community who helped to organise, translate and look after the kids.
