CHARD Boxing Club, who hold training nights on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5.30pm, are encouraging new members to go along and train.

Amanda Ayers, who trains at the club along with her sons Mitchell and Spencer, said: “It’s a lovely little club and a real home from home.

“We have a decent amount of members but are always looking out for more – including women.”

The club’s star performer is currently 16-year-old Teaken Prior who is ranked third in the country in his age group.

The club is based at 5/6 Victoria Business Park in Victoria Avenue.
