girls in gloves

A Groundbreaking project, supported by maverick Stars, is going down a storm at Wimbourne Amateur Boxing Club.

Its 'Girls in Gloves' initiative, which aims to help tackle mental health problems and raise female participation levels in boxing, is proving hugely successful and has resulted in several girls competing in the sport.

Pictured are Chloe Dover (12)  Mia Keynes (11) and Leah Smith (11) who have had 16 bouts between and have been praised as fantastic role models. 

The Dorset club was set up to bring boxing to the local community and help educate youth through sport with the guidance of head coach Dave Rimmer.
