Boxing Club


By Carl Turner

A strong and dedicated team of 16 boxers from Rye Town Amateur Boxing Club will be heading off to Wales on Friday 8th March 2013 to take on their biggest challenge to date. The challenge named Operation Lion Heart will see Rye’s Boxing Team led by coaches Dean Turner and Carl Turner, engage in combat with two local Welsh Boxing Clubs, one after the other, immediately followed by a 3,560ft climb to the summit of the highest mountain in England and Wales, Mount Snowdon. Head Coach Carl Turner says, “this is no simple task for anyone involved but I have more than enough faith in each and every member of our team to know that they are more than capable of smashing this challenge, many of the team have been training consistently for a year now and have physical and mental strengths far beyond the average person, following the arduous sparring against various opponents the team are going to be more than exhausted and will really have to dig deep and show real heart to successfully reach the summit of Snowdon, especially within the target summit time of 3.5hrs. Myself and the Rest of the Rye Town Staff are so happy that we have been able to create this challenge and we can’t wait to watch the team represent Rye in a display of sheer strength, endurance and courage as they stride through each challenge one after the other waving the Rye Flag high,. Rye Town Amateur Boxing Club is a non-profit community sports club and through this event we are looking to get sponsorship to help pay towards our yearly overheads which are coming up very soon and we appeal to anyone who wishes to support us to please contact us, all support no matter how small is highly appreciated. We are also in a strong position now to take on full yearly sponsorship from local businesses and can advertise effectively in return.
