Grimsby Boxing Academy has come a long way since its start up 4 years ago in a small room in Scartho. Their focus is on fitness, education and well being and have stated that ‘for a lot of children Boxing and GBA are the difference between hanging around on the street corners or not.’ Run by a group of 20 volunteers, the Academy has built up a membership of over 300 people, focussing on under 18’s.
