Gumshield Boxing Gym

London's leading boxing and training gym


Eltham & District ABC was founded in 1945 and has been fulfilling bouts nationwide ever since.

The club moved from Yorkshire Grey to Gumshield Gym in 2008 and has gone from strength to strength in recent years, with 21 national champions last season alone.

Among the club’s alumni is Sir Henry Cooper, English boxing legend, who plied his amateur trade at Eltham & District winning 73 of his 84 amateur bouts. After a stellar professional career, he would later credit the club as pivotal to his learning.

Today, our amateur programme runs from August to May on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights from 4:00 – 7:30 pm. Ages 10-40 welcome.

Juniors – 4:00 – 5:30
Seniors – 6:00 – 7:30
