Tralee Boxing Club News

Second and final week of Tralee Boxing Club Summer Camp 2022 kicked off this week.

The camp, in conjunction with TBC’s Building Friendship and Strength, One Punch at a Time project which is funded by the CIF, has provided a wonderful space for kids of all backgrounds to box, play and take part in team activities together. Boxing has never been so inclusive and so much fun.


Not only is our club blessed with some wonderful young boxers, we also have a chance to see how creative, co-operative, positive and joyful they all are.

Some of the highlights of last week were without doubt, the big team build off, where 3 groups competed against each other to build the most impressive project out of cardboard, the Rocky Balboa Obstacle course, and finally soak the coach.


Apologies to the town of Tralee if there’s water shortages during the weekend, the kids are fully intent on getting their sweet revenge on us all at the end of the camp.

A hundred thousand thanks are owed to all the fabulous volunteers, coaches and organisers of camp.


We also owe thanks to EF signs and the Brand geeks for helping us out during the week. Our team is without doubt our most valuable asset, without the brilliant attitude, drive and generosity of all volunteers, Tralee Boxing Club, and our community, as a whole, would certainly be a lot less brighter. You are all champions!!!


On that note, there is an opening for a new member on our team as a boxing coach, available from September.

No experience necessary, training and documentation will be provided. The position is paid as part of a CE scheme and consists of 19.5hrs per week. Please contact Pat on 086 194 2824 or Lynda on 087 766 3406 for more details or to apply for the position.

Finding it too warm in the evenings to train? Coach Shamey has kicked off a new early morning boxing session.


Shake off the cobwebs and get your sweat on before the morning rush, you’re guaranteed to be full of energy for the day ahead. Class starts at 7am sharp on Friday mornings and is approx. 1hr long, priced at €7 only, or free if you pay for the week.

Our popular ladies only class is continuing for the summer. Class is fitness focused, and non contact, but we provide plenty of bag work and rounds in the ring on pads with the coach so that our boxers have space to develop their strength and confidence in a friendly, motivational environment.


No experience necessary, ladies only is suitable for all levels of fitness. Training gear, a towel and water is all that’s needed to participate. Class costs just €7 and takes place Sunday evening, from 4:00-5:15 pm, strictly girls and ladies only.
