Club History

New Era Boxing was formed in 2011 by Mark Bebbington. Mark first started boxing in 1993 aged just 11 for his first amateur club Winsford ABC. Mark then moved to Warrington ABC and enjoyed competing until joining the Royal Engineers at the age of 18. Mark was fortunate to box for the Army Boxing team under Head Coach Chris Bessey MBE (6 times ABA champion) and in doing so learned many great techniques to develop skills within boxing.

Since leaving the Army, Mark returned to compete in Warrington, this time for Phoenix Olympic ABC. This is where Mark focused on becoming a coach and went onto pass his first coaching qualification in 2007. Mark then progressed onto the full coaching award at Tom Lowe ABC (Kidsgrove, Staffordshire) which allowed him to develop his coaching further, this time gaining experience in coaching Junior boxers.

Looking to develop his skills further Mark enrolled at Mid Cheshire College onto a foundation degree in Sports Coaching and PE. Mark utilised  the theory learned on the degree course to improve the training sessions at the club. By doing so, the latest training techniques are continually developed, including areas such as periodisation, strength & conditioning and performance analysis.

Currently situated in Queen street, Northwich. The club is affiliated to England Boxing, has access to separate male and female changing facilities and openly welcome both boys and girls to all sessions. All the coaches at the club have in date enhanced CRB clearance certificates and are also first aid trained. We also have an appointed child welfare officer who ensures the highest coaching standards are always used. The welfare and safeguarding of children is an absolute priority across all junior sessions at the club.

Training is available from anyone ages 5+ with competition offered from ages 10 to 40 years old.

Most importantly however, the club is open to everyone not just those who want to compete, so whether its fitness, weight loss, or simply volunteering then feel free to come and visit us and see what we can offer you.
