HILLCREST BOXING GYM IS 100% VOLUNTEER RUN. WITHOUT OUR VOLUNTEERS AND SPONSORS WE WOULD NOT BE HERE – ask how you can help
Hillcrest Boxing Gym – The club came about from the efforts of local amateur boxing coaches George Danaher, Terrence Parkinson, Chris Sparks and Graeme Savage who following closure of the Seaford boxing club recognised a need for a well equipped boxing Gym in the Newhaven area.
With the assistance of club President Jonny Colbourne and the former owners of Newhaven and district ABC Michael Chapman and Trevor West they had been searching for a suitable venue for some time when the Hillcrest Centre offered them a permanent home in the unused basement of the centre, that was back in 2005 and since then boxers and coaches have come and gone but the club has gone from strength to strength with several fighters winning southern counties titles and one gaining success at national level.
The gym is open 5 nights a week for a variety of class session’s run by our team of volunteer coaches. The gym is also available for private hire and some of our coaches also offer weekday or weekend one to one sessions at reasonable rates.
