Steve Strong with Ted Peate

Hyde & District Amateur Boxing Club is run by Steve Strong a Level 2 coach with the help of Andy Green a Level 1 coach.  Steve and Andy both boxed as amateurs themselves and enjoy giving back to the sport by coaching.

If you want to start boxing with a view to competing or want to box for fitness we offer sessions on Tuesday and Thursdays.  Mon, Wed and Friday sessions are for those who want to compete and have or are about to get a medical card to compete.

We take children from 6 years old and there is no upper age limit as we promote fitness for all.

Brief History:

Initially under the internship of legendary Hyde trainer Ted Peate (see Ted's Spotlight page) and formerly known as the Louvolite Boxing Club, now known as Hyde and District ABA the club is now run by former National Amateur  Boys Club Champion, Steve Strong.

Notable names that have been at the club, include a young Ricky Hatton, Tony Feno, Alan Page, Stevie Bell and current head coach Steve Strong.

Steve was Ted's first National Champion  in 1982 and Ted always said that when he was ready to retire, he would leave the Gym in the capable hands of his first Champion, a proud moment for both trainer and boxer alike.. True to his word, Steve Strong took up that mantle in 2012 and it has remained his passion ever since and has kept the legacy going. Sadly, Ted is no longer with us to see the good work his protégé is doing.

For every single professional boxer there are 100s of amateurs and professional boxing would not exist without the work of Gyms and trainers that work night and day for their love of boxing

The gym is welcoming and once you enter it you are immediately welcomed into the boxing family, whether you are boxing to be fit or boxing to be competitive, there is a place for you at Hyde and District ABA.

Like his mentor before him, Steve Strong has dedicated his life to the Amateur boxing scene in Hyde and beyond, when you speak to him his passion his unrivalled.

Long may it last!!!!!!!!!!!!
