Q: Can women box for the club?

Yes of course, in the last year or so there has been a growing number of women that train at the gym for competitive boxing training. We have had so far two women box for the club (Sara Knieper & Stephanie Louis-Fernand) who have both gone onto win gold medals in boxing tournaments. We are still communally known as the Islington Boys Club but this name no longer fits in with the club and we are now much more known as “Islington Boxing Club”. The fact that the we welcome women into the sport who are representing the club in amateur bouts, shows that the Boys Club tag is not a correct title anymore.
